OHIE Supply Chain and Facility Registry interoperability

Hi OHIE Facility Registry community,

The OHIE Supply Chain subcommunity has an updated roadmap of topics to address, and one topic is ‘Facility Registry alignment’.

In the next few months, we would like to have dialogue on key areas of alignment. For example:

  • Would a Facility Registry include all facilities that can hold stock (warehouses, not just service delivery points)?
  • Do Facility Registries allow us to capture multiple hierarchies, such as geographic and government administrative hierarchies that can differ from programmatic supervision hierarchies or from supply lines, meaning product X comes to district warehouse Y from regional warehouse Z?
  • Should facility registries start to support GLN identifiers (Global Location Number, a GS1 standard) to aid end-to-end visibility?

If you’re interested in these topics, consider joining our next OHIE Supply Chain Subcommunity meeting, or email me directly to connect. VillageReach and Ona are co-chairing the Supply Chain subcommunity, and we meet every 3rd Friday. Our next meeting is Friday, November 16 at 11am Eastern Time.

Reply to me with any questions or to get involved. Warmly,

-Brandon

We welcome feedback at Friday’s meeting, in this email thread, or in that wiki page using comments.

Thanks to Scott Teesdale and Dana Acciavatti who have both already provided feedback and/or expressed interest in joining Friday’s conversation!
