Welcome to the OpenHIE community!
If you’re sending PAM messages, then you’re playing the role of a Point Of Care (PoC) system in the health information exchange.
OpenMRS is therefore acting as client that integrates with the larger exchange. This is usually a distributed role, for example clinic or hospital systems.
The “front-door” for a request from a PoC system into the HIE is always the Interoperability Layer (IL), so therefore your requests will be targeted there.
The IL will route and orchestrate the requests then to the relevant registry, in this case the Client Registry, which is the central patient database.
The following sequence diagram nicely illustrates the message flow:
Steps 1 and 4 are therefore relevant to your scenario.
The software we use for the IL is called the OpenHIM and in order to send the message there, and would expose an appropriate endpoint to receive the request on.
We’ve generally been using the XML versions of the HL7v2 messages over REST on the OpenHIM, rather than the pipe-and-hat MLLP.
Hope this helps!
The two most relevant sub-communities for your work are the Client Registry and Interoperability Layer communities:
and you may find it useful to get involved with these in particular as well.

Good Day Sara,
I am including 2 of my colleagues, Pierre Dane and Hannes Venter, who have actively implemented/investigated the PAM profile through the HIM to in the HIE. I’m hoping they will be able to give you some feedback and guidance.

I am Sara Fatima, I am working on a project for OpenMRS through GSoC 2014 program. In this project
the PAM profile is being used to send information about each patient that is registered in the OpenMRS system to OpenHIE end point. This will allow OpenMRS to integrate into an HIE more easily.
This is a work
in progress, currently we have completed generation of HL7 message for the patient which was created as per PAM profile. Now we want to send the message to OpenHIE. I will be using HAPI
to send the message. I need some details about how OpenHIE works to receive these messages. I would be glad if I could get some lead from OpenHIE community.
Thanks & Regards
