As we discussed on today’s architecture call – here are 3 resources which attempt to describe functional workflows… and how digital health architecture can be employed to realize these care delivery processes. Some of these are pretty old… but I hope they’re helpful just the same.
The 3 documents are:
- An mHealth Architecture for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (MNCH). This was a draft work product developed for the mHealth Alliance in 2011 (before FHIR… and before OpenHIE!). meHealth Framework for MNCH v0.9 (draft for discussion).docx (3.5 MB)
- A slide deck that describes a set of workflows representing re-usable patterns that leverage common digital health infrastructure. This was developed to inform some WHO work that PEPFAR was funding related to a digital health guideline for LMICs; it is from 2012 (also before FHIR and at the very early stages of OpenHIE). 12-06-11 Use Case Examples v0.2.pptx (698.2 KB)
- A slide deck developed in 2017 for UNICEF; the deck illustrates how a solution architecture (for an immunization registry, for example) leverages and functional architecture… which in turn leverages an enterprise architecture that describes a re-usable digital health infrastructure. 17-11-11 Digital Architecture for Children.pptx (1.6 MB)
All of these artefacts are being posted to help prompt discussion and elaboration of “functional” descriptions of our OpenHIE architecture in terms of a business viewpoint. They will, hopefully, give us a bit of a “walking start”… Comments and suggestions for improvements are welcome!
