The Client Registry is a component of the OpenHIE and much more. There are currently two reference software implementations that have been IHE conformance tested and verified to support OpenHIE workflows: OpenEMPI and MEDIC-CR. It is essential the client registry component is highly performant and scales to larger systems. Our high level goals include:
The mission of the OpenHIE Client Registry Community (OHIE-CR) is to enable an open, collaborative and global group dedicated to promoting and supporting people, disseminating best practices, and fostering innovative technology that provides accurate, reliable and stable identification and de-duplication of individuals and other entities in a variety of contexts, particularly resource constrained settings.
We envision a world where the evolving identity management needs for systems in a variety of contexts, particularly resource-constrained health care environments, are supported by an open, collaborative and vibrant global community.
Collaboration – We value the contribution from community stakeholders and the meaningful partnerships that emerge from a variety of complementary roles that community members may serve.
Communication – We value providing multiple venues by which community members can interact. These mechanisms include e-mail, wiki, IRC, telephone and face-to-face meetings.
Interoperability - We value creating seamless integration among complementary components that may interact with MPI technology; we seek to leverage and promote standards-based approaches where feasible and practical.
Openness - We value the inclusion of the rich diversity of experiences and perspectives that community members provide; we respect individual differences, and support intellectual freedom and diversity of thought; we seek to enable access for all who can benefit from our people, best practices, and technology.
