OpenHIE Leadership Call - Monday, May 16th

To try to foster/illicit more discussion on this topic, I’m cross-posting this note from the leads community to the sandbox community. :slight_smile:

Thanks, Jamie (and Shaun).

My sense is that the network of
interoperability labs can and should play two key roles for OpenHIE:

  1. Inform our designs and specifications and
    help them be more evidence-based (an applied research role);
  2. Provide an important and useful way for
    OpenHIE to be “brought to market” (a channel management role).

The OpenHIE community of communities
supports and articulates our initiative’s mission and vision. It develops and
documents the enterprise architecture (the blueprint) including: the use cases,
the design patterns, and the interoperability profiles that realize these
workflows. Crucially, it also provides the structure the helps us manage and
govern our communities’ interactions with each other, with our donor supporters,
and with other interested parties.

What should we do differently? I think the
thing we should do differently is to more clearly draw a line between OpenHIE
as a blueprint and OpenHIE as a product stack. I think the labs afford us
an elegant way to do this.

Presently, the OpenHIE communities include
a number of software development shops. This served us well over our design and
engineering phases. The focus of these first phases was reflected in our early governance
design; we largely organized ourselves around technology products. In some
communities, there is only one technology product represented; in others there
is more than one. In my view, we should leverage our labs to give us a way to
separate the definition of what OpenHIE is
(our blueprint) from examples of an OpenHIE-conformant product (e.g. OpenEMPI & MEDIC CR as conformant client registries
or Resource Map & DHIS2 as conformant facility directories).

Guarding against channel conflict is
important. My sense is that for OpenHIE to thrive during its new
implementation-focused phase, it will need to become clearer to “the market” that
OpenHIE is not a closed club of software
products. Even the unintentional illusion
of this creates the potential for channel conflict (as an example, try to find
information about MEDIC CR on our client registry wiki page: https://wiki.ohie.org/display/SUB/Client+Registry+Community).

In my view, our OpenHIE communities should
leverage the interoperability labs as a way to de-couple ourselves from
specific software and focus on our core product: the blueprint and its
governance.

I hope this idea can enjoy an active
discussion on this thread. J

Warmest regards,

Derek.

Derek,

On yesterday’s call you talked about a lab concept note. Shaun had a question but we ran out of time so as a follow up from the discussion here’s a brief summary of the question:

In the context of these regional learning labs, what would we do differently using the HEAL lab as an example? Conversations/relationships currently exist with members of the HEAL lab, so what would we be doing differently?
There is obvious value in the concept regional labs, so how would we do this well?

Let’s continue the discussion here.
