OpenHIE Academy Launched - 2 Courses Now Available!

The OpenHIE Academy has launched with 2 introductory courses on the foundation of HIE and an overview of the architecture. The online learning tool is ready for users to sign in, use your OpenHIE ID, also your Discourse and Wiki log-in information, and begin earning certificates upon course completion!

We hope you will share this link with those who are interested in learning more about OpenHIE!

A special thanks goes out to all of the contributors! I would love for more people to engage as we create additional materials that help lay the foundation for health information exchange. Respond to this post or email me if you have materials that can contribute to future modules or if you would like to be a part of the team that moves this concept forward.


It’s exciting to see how far the #OHIEAcademy has come since its inception in 2019! Thank you to the community for tell us what you needed and supporting this effort! Also thanks to OHIE @Leads for giving us a foundation to build upon.


Hello @jennifer.e.shivers,
I would definitely like to be “half-part” of the team working on this.
As I am still learning much of what is out there helping out would be great too.
