Welcome to the OpenHIE Implementers Network (OHIN)
OHIN: What is this forum and who is involved?
OpenHIE supports a collaborative space for those leveraging electronic health information by standardizing it in environments with constrained resources.
The OpenHIE Implementers Network (OHIN) provides a peer-learning forum for implementers to engage with one another, interact with the OpenHIE community, and create bridges between networks through OpenHIE hosted events. OHIN events are open to everyone, with special emphasis for the work of country implementers, domain experts, and developers wanting to adopt and implement OpenHIE standards.
What do typical OHIN events look like and how can I participate?
OHIN takes place in the form of open, virtual meetings held throughout the year, showcasing OpenHIE implementations, technical demonstrations, and other topics of interest to the community. In addition, resources and updates surrounding the community are also shared. Following these main meeting topics, space is also saved for attendees to share insights and challenges they are experiencing.
Community members are encouraged to bring questions, problems, and ideas unique to implementing the OpenHIE Architecture and tools to these meetings to take advantage of the peer-learning network.
Drivers for an implementation community:
OpenHIE wants to be implementation driven
Increasing demand from countries and funders
Need to build up evidence base for what works and doesn't
Facilitate collaboration between implementations
The OpenHIE Implementers Network (OHIN) is a community network to support three identified user groups:
Developers wanting to adopt and implement OpenHIE standards.
The OHIN is an implementers portal and leverages existing peer-based learning networks and creates bridges between networks.
During the course of our discussions we are engaging with various use-cases and scenarios where implementers are trying to understand how OpenHIE can and is being used. Below are some links to existing discussions that are being captured:
As the OpenHIE Implementers Network is growing we are wanting to make sure it is a space that is able to address the questions and provide the answers each member is looking for. We would value your input into and on the following:
