OpenHIE Provider Registry Community: MINUTES and NEXT STEPS

Greetings All,

To view the minutes from our last call, please visit the
page on the OpenHIE wiki.

During the call, we discussed and refined Community Goals and proposed next steps. For those who were unable to join us for the call, we encourage your input and participation as follows:

Finalizing Community Goals (below):
PLEASE PROVIDE COMMENTS/CONCERNS via the PR Google Group by Friday, April 12th

Join IHE and provide comments on Part 1 of
Care Services Discovery Profile draft when forwarded by Derek Ritz (SEE MINUTES: USER STORY -Derek Ritz, ecGroup)

Identify/Gather existing profiles/standards for reference implementation—please forward via PR Google Group


** 1. Identify and document country or system-level user stories, use cases and functional requirements for exchange of health workforce information based
on participant experiences and/or needs.**

One already identified use case is a central level provider registry that can serve as a canonical source of providers in a country.

Use cases may be further divided into data source and data consumption use cases.

Use cases should include interoperability with other OpenHIE registry products to support collective operation as a whole.

** 2. Build consensus on community data exchange profiles and standards for the Health Workforce Information domain, identifying and addressing any gaps
in recommended profiles in meeting documented user stories.**

Identify possible health workforce information profiles (e.g. HPD – being implemented in Rwanda and Zimbabwe)

Evaluate profiles and standards

Select one or more profiles we can all invest time to support

Extend profiles and standards through appropriate consensus-driven processes to fill gaps

**3.**Support development of one or more reference implementations of the profiles and standards in support of the documented user stories

At least one of the reference implementations should address the central provider registry use case.

Other reference implementations may include different data consumer and data source use cases

** Country implementation activities could then choose among the reference implementations OR take standards and guidance and build their own as long as they have full
access to associated standards and profiles.**
