OpenHIE Architecture Call - Friday, June 26 at 10 a.m. EDT

Just a reminder that we will be having the OpenHIE Architecture call Friday, June 26th at 10:00 a.m. EDT.


  1. Lab data workflows (Rita and Jan?)
    Goal: Feedback needed to get the lab workflows ready for the specification

  2. PEPFAR patient-level work (Vlad and Jorge)
    Goal: Inform the community about DATIM/PEPFAR Patient data work

  3. What does it mean to “support” FHIR?
    Discussion - besides updating the specification, what other actions do we need to take?

CORRECTION: This will be added to the agenda for the next OHIE Architecture call on July 13th.

  1. Present Mobile Health Document Sharing (Luke and Derek R)

At the end of the call we briefly started a discussion of the role of a unique ID for health and the fundamental importance of these to a successful care delivery network. Last year (2019), the OpenHIE community lead the development of an IHE Profile that addresses this important topic.

Details about the IHE Patient Master Identity Registry (PMIR) Profile can be found here:

Details about the workflows needed to ensure the correctness of establishing the unique enterprise ID for a subject of care as part of saving health data related to that person are detailed in the Mobile Health Document Sharing (MHDS) Profile. Information about MHDS can be found here:

Both PMIR and MHDS are conformance-testable, FHIR-based profiles. They are part of a larger initiative (and a new IHE white paper) focused on how to engineer an entirely FHIR-based HIE. The IHE white paper will be published later in 2020 (and will include OpenHIE as an exemplar).

If you could not join us for the OpenHIE Architecture call today, you can read the minutes or listen to the recording on 2020-06-26 Architecture Call wiki page.

The next OpenHIE Architecture call is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. EDT on Monday, July 13th.
