Is there an alternative solution to OpenHIM (for comparaison purpose ) ?

Good morning,

Is there an alternative solution to OpenHIM ? I would still like to be able to compare it to other solutions of the same type (open source or proprietary).

Kind regards

Hi Ben.

There are a number of commercial products from which a health information mediator (HIM) layer may be constructed, such as Microsoft Biztalk (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/biztalk/) or WebMethods (http://www.webmethodscloud.com/). A number of Canadian healthcare implementations have used these products as the basis of their HIEs. There are, I believe, 3rd party plug-ins for these major ESB offerings that support digital health standards-based message exchange. (you should look for links to these from their respective web pages).

There is also an open source initiative of the US government called “Connect” (https://www.healthit.gov/topic/health-it-initiatives/fha-connect). Connect has support native for OpenHIE’s key workflows right out-of-the-box. It might be the best option for doing a quick side-by-side comparison to OpenHIM. As a note… Connect is the supporting infrastructure behind the Sequoia HIE – which contains the health information of over 180 million US citizens.

I hope this is helpful.

Warmest regards,

Derek

Hi Ben,

Derek has lifted out some good options. There is also Mirth/now Next Gen (https://www.nextgen.com/products-and-services/integration-engine) who (with some digging) you can find the open source version of the engine. For other ESB tools there are a range such as Mule (www.mulesoft.com) apache camel (http://camel.apache.org). The latter two are not “out of the box” configured for health care tho.

Dear Ben,

I think one important aspect of comparing the OpenHIM and other solutions is that there are existing software tools that connect through it for RapidPro and DHIS2, especially OpenInfoMan which can act as a registry for health workers, facilities, and other needs. So, OpenHIM opens up a wide range of existing tools and interoperability that many others do not.

Hope that helps,
