What is the difference between a master facility list and a facility registry? How do private and public health care providers share data? When does a client registry become a shared health record? In this course you will develop literacy about common registries and services in a HIE, the interoperability layer, and how mediators can address many needs for customization.

Instructor: Carl Leitner

Facilitator: Abraham Gebregiorgis

Academy Course: Overview of Global Data Standards

What are global standards in health IT? Why do we need them? This course demystifies the complexities of global standards, how they are created, and why they are used. Participants will learn about the institutions involved in the creation and adoption of standards, Regenstrief (LOINC), Health Level 7 (FHIR) and Integrating the Health Enterprise (mCSD, among many others), and understand how standards are used in OpenHIE Architecture Workflows.

Instructor: Luke Duncan Jonathan Payne

Facilitator: Tesfit Gebemeskel


Meeting Room 1

Leadership and Governance: What is a Global Good?

This presentation provides an overview of individual Global Goods and how they address specific business domains within the health information ecosystem. How does OpenHIE provide a blueprint, using best practices in interoperability and open standards, for bringing these global goods together?

Relationship between FHIR and OpenHIE. How does it work into workflows, standards and profiles. Implementers share where and why they have used it.




Conference Session: General Principles for Client Identity

The client registry is an essential component of an HIE supporting functions for record linkage and care coordination. This session will be a discussion around the general principles for handling client identities such as; support for multiple identification methods, handling of privacy/security/confidentiality, developing a reference implementation and tools for human adjudicated identity reconciliation.

Conference Session: Aligning HIS to Epidemic Control

As countries approach HIV Epidemic Control and move towards the 95.95.95 objectives, their data needs vary depending on specific programmatic objectives. More and more, we see increasing needs for patient-level data to monitor patients through the treatment cascade. Single sourced data from Electronic Medical Records have also proven to be incomplete to tell the bigger picture. Data from service delivery systems, such as laboratory and logistics, are becoming essential to increase retention and tell a more complete story of a country’s HIV response. Data exchange and interoperability is now a required capability in our HIS eco-system. The data needs are changing both in variety and velocity. We are moving towards close-to real-time availability of patient-level as well as aggregate data to increase effectiveness as well as determine early course corrections and interventions.  The indicators needed are also becoming more and more local and temporary to focus on specific programmatic activities. The analytics and visuals expected also require more predictive and prescriptive approaches using machine learning and advances in visualization. In general, we are now in a new era where data is integrated from multiple-systems; indicators are local and temporary, and our analytics needs are moving predictive beyond the diagnostic paradigm.
