What is an OpenHIE Partner Organization (OPO)?
The term “OpenHIE Partner Organization” (OPO) is an organization actively participating in the OpenHIE Community and has a demonstrated interest in driving the OpenHIE mission, vision, and values. OPOs actively invest their time into helping the OpenHIE Community sustainably achieve its goals in solidarity with our focus populations. For example, organizations in the community may take on roles around standards development, implementation support, software application support, etc. In return, the community serves as a milieu that advances the OPO organization’s knowledge/experience, collaboration opportunities, and reputation within the global health informatics community.
To empower a consortium of organizations to advance OpenHIE’s core mission within a rapidly growing community of practice. By becoming an OPO, any organization can contribute to the digital transformation of health systems as part of a community mission that hopefully aligns with the mission of your organization.
Those organizations that are successful participants within the community describe many benefits of participation:
... serve as exemplars of OpenHIE’s mission, vision and values
... share or encourage sharing of country implementation activities
... serve as community ambassadors through the digital health ecosystem and encourage a broader representation in OpenHIE processes
... assist in developing materials for OpenHIE scenarios and workflows to be shared
... assist secretariat and committees in prioritizing activities within the larger OpenHIE community roadmap
... assist in the success of virtual and in person community (subcommunity and working group) events
