Supply Chain Subcommunity - join us!

Hi OHIE Community!

Are you…

  • Integrating supply chain systems or data?

  • Connecting a LMIS to DHIS2?

  • Working with a master product list / catalog / classification?

If you answered YES, we invite you to join the OHIE Supply Chain Subcommunity. VillageReach and Ona are co-chairing the subcommunity, and we meet every 3rd Friday. Join us Friday, October 19 to get involved!

Why was this subcommunity formed, and what are our goals?

As countries contemplate their implementation approaches to health data sharing, many are beginning to discern how the work of the health supply chain intersects with the overall health enterprise architecture. Many within the OpenHIE community see substantial synergies between supply chain workflows and OpenHIE conventions. To that end, we have created a working group that is designed to represent and codify the needs of supply chain, and directly influence overall OpenHIE conventions and standards so that they are directly supportive. This working group is comprised of individuals who are either implementation “practitioners” of supply chain infrastructure, standards-savvy professionals, and others interested in supporting this work in a substantive way.


  • Build consensus around supply chain technical and operational conventions and definitions

  • Develop documented data sharing use cases that describe the fundamental flow of information within a typical supply chain

  • Build new, or refine existing OpenHIE workflows in support of these data sharing use cases

  • Represent, and give voice, to the real world needs of countries as they implement supply chain management infrastructure within the auspices of a national data sharing architecture

To get involved, join us on 10/19 or see our upcoming meeting schedule. Reply with any questions or to get in touch!
