OpenHIM released as open source!


As a part of the work we have been doing in Rwanda at the moment with the RHEA project we have been creating a health information exchange to enable interoperability between the OpenMRS systems implemented in the some of the health facilities in the Rwamagana district. The architecture of this health information exchange contains a key component that manages the interoperability and orchestration of transactions. It is called the Open Health Information Mediator (OpenHIM). Yesterday, we released this component as open source. If you are interested please see the release notice below:

We at Jembi Health System are proud to announce the open source (MPL 2.0) release of the Open Health Information Mediator!

This project aims to enable easier interoperability between disparate health information systems. This version of the source code was developed for the Rwandan reference implementation of a Health Information Exchange for maternal health. It is our goal, with your help, to make this project more generally applicable for enabling health information exchanges in other low resource setting.

If you would like to get involved we have some mailing lists setup for further discussion. You can find out how to register for these here:

And finally you can find the source code for this project on Github at: Please get in touch with us if you are interested in helping out with this project.

We look forward to working together to bring health systems interoperability to low resource setting!
