Process Overview

As a part for the RHEA project an HIE has been developed for maternal health in Rwanda. For more information about this implementation see: here. During this implementation a Shared Health Record (SHR) based off of OpenMRS ( was developed. This is expected to work for the pilot implementation for the RHEA project that is planned to run in a single district of Rwanda, however, it is not known if this instance will scale to a national level and if the technology is appropriate for national scale.

As a part of the OpenHIE project this community is tasked with reviewing and evaluating what makes a good SHR going into the future and seeks to determine what technologies would be suit a SHR for the purposes of OpenHIE.
