OpenHIM in production use

Just wondering if there is a list of OpenHIM production-level implementations in active use? Wanted to be able to point some folks to examples where it is being used successfully at scale.

Hi @janflowers, some examples of where the OpenHIM is being used:

  • In South Africa as a core component of MomConnect and NurseConnect, a National Department of Health initiative to improve the health of pregnant women, newborns and infants at national scale.
  • In Bangladesh as a core component of the OpenCRVS Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) system.
  • As a core component of PEPFAR’s Data for Accountability, Transparency and Impact (DATIM) global and country node data exchange architectures.
  • In Lesotho as an interoperability layer in their health information exchange.

Here’s a link to a recent presentation outliningthe OpenHIM in more detail and some of these use cases: JHS OpenHIM 101 Presentation (2020).


Thanks @daniel.futerman- is it still used as part of the Rwanda health system nationally?

Hi @janflowers
I understand that the Rwanda Health Information Exchange is not presently being used nationally in Rwanda

However, the Ministry of Health and Rwanda Biomedical Centre are working with a private company to update the system with a view to implementing again in Rwanda.
