Welcome and Introductions

Good Day all

Welcome to the OpenHIE Implementers Network. We are excited to have started this new forum and really want to welcome all. Each of you have probably received an invitation email and we encourage you to invite others who may find the concept of this forum interesting. We look forward to building this network out with yourselves. As a team we are looking to make this a network driven communications forums where our (the network collective’s) needs and questions are answered and discussed.

With that said we encourage the asking of questions, the raising of suggestions; we’ve put a draft “canned” invitation text on the wiki to help anyone along with rapidly drafting invitations.

As we get going it would be good to get a sense of the network and the current members. Could I ask for a round of introductions from each of us, particularly outlining which of the 3 groups:

  1. Country implementers
  2. Domain experts
  3. Developers wanting to adopt and implement OpenHIE standards.
    best describes your interest in OpenHIE.

Carl Fourie, Senior Program Manager, Jembi Health Systems NPC (South Africa)

I have interest in all 3 groups but more closely align to the Country Implementers group. I’m looking to see how we can learn from others and add to the networks understanding of how to best approach and implement OpenHIE in the developing settings.

Hello! I am Alvin Marcelo and I wear two hats – one is associate professor at the University of the Philippines Manila (interest in country implementer --> Philippine Health Information Exchange) and the other is executive director of the Asia eHealth Information Network (interest in Developers wanting to adopt and implement OpenHIE standards).

Looking forward to learning from the others and likewise share our own experiences in Asia/Philippines…

Hi Everyone,

I’m Craig Appl from the Grameen Foundation. I work on the MOTECH platform as a technical program manager and am excited about this group starting. MOTECH focuses on connecting point of service applications to infrastructure systems like DHIS2 through API connections. We’re working on expanding this to better integrate with OpenHIE by adopting IHE standards. I’m particularly interested in what happens between the OpenHIM and the point of service. I was a small scale implementer before this position and aim to contribute lessons from working in remote areas to this group.

Sincerely,

Craig

Morning All

Its great to have you each on the network. We are really looking forward to sinking our teeth into what it means to be Implementers. Its is great to see the various view points coming out in this forum and I want to continue to encourage everyone to introduce themselves and own the Network as a place to ask the questions we have on our minds. As a collective we want to make sure that we are open to answering or directing members to the answers they are looking for (and finding those that don’t exist yet) - don’t be shy, say “hi”.

We have a thread going asking “What are we missing” on the wiki and it is aiming to get a better sense of what would be useful to see when you land on the OpenHIE Experimenters wiki page. Again I’d like to personally encourage each and every one to consider this and drop a line, a thought, make a change. Great to meet you all and hoping to see your names pop up on the lists.

Cheers - Carl

Oh and as always feel free to invite friends and family (those who would find value in what we are doing as a team) to join our discussions.

Hi everyone,

I’m Pierre Dane, Software Development Manager at Jembi Health Systems. I work with the Jembi team on all our openHIE related technology.

I’ve been heavily involved in interoperability with the HMIS component (DHIS2) from source systems like openMRS and project like MomConnect which use components of the openHIE architecture at a national level.

We are currently working with Regenstrief to add a facility registry to DATIM, which will use a generic FHIR matching service to help with de-duplication of facilities at a global level.

My Jembi colleagues and I are passionate about interoperability and data exchange using openHIE methodologies, and the application of these to functioning national public health information systems.

Looking forward to active collaboration with this group!

Hi Everyone.

My name is Derek Ritz. I work as a health informatics professional and have been (and am) involved in numerous digital health initiatives in southern Africa, the middle east, and in Asia-Pacific. I look forward to participating in this group and to focusing on the ways our digital health infrastructures can deliver value in the countries we work in. There is no sugar-coating it… to deliver value, we need to “make it go”. And to make it deliver value on a population basis, we need to make it go to scale.

I am excited to be part of this conversation.

Warmest regards,

Derek.

As a team we are looking to make this a network driven communications forums where our (the network collective’s) needs and questions are answered and discussed.

With that said we encourage the asking of questions, the raising of suggestions; we’ve put a draft “canned” invitation text on the wiki to help anyone along with rapidly drafting invitations.

As we get going it would be good to get a sense of the network and the current members. Could I ask for a round of introductions from each of us, particularly outlining which of the 3 groups:

  1. Country implementers
  2. Domain experts
  3. Developers wanting to adopt and implement OpenHIE standards.
    best describes your interest in OpenHIE.

Carl Fourie, Senior Program Manager, Jembi Health Systems NPC (South Africa)

I have interest in all 3 groups but more closely align to the Country Implementers group. I’m looking to see how we can learn from others and add to the networks understanding of how to best approach and implement OpenHIE in the developing settings.

Hi All,

It is great to see the Implementer Network underway here. My name is Scott Teesdale, I am a program manager at InSTEDD - a design and technology non-profit organization. I also help manage the OpenHIE Facility Registry community, along with Eduardo Jezierski. My personal background lends itself primarily to the first two categories: Implementing eHealth/mHealth systems and Public Health Domain Expertise (e.g., Disease Surveillance, Laboratory Diagnostics, & Epidemiology). That said, I increasingly believe in the immense value of interdisciplinary teams where implementers and technology/domain experts collaborate on the major health challenges of our day. I really am looking forward to the upcoming discussions that will come through this venue.

Best,

Scott

Hi everyone!

My name is Amanda Puckett BenDor and I am a Technical Advisor at IntraHealth International. I wear several hats like many of you but they all relate to health systems strengthening and improving health services via strong health information systems and data use. I’m thrilled to join this forum of experts to help make bringing OpenHIE to scale.

At IntraHealth I am an enthusiastic member of our Informatics team, namely leading our mHero work through the USAID Ebola Grand Challenge. Attached is a paper Carl Fourie (Jembi) and I recently co-wrote with Dykki Settle (PATH) about Interoperability, eArchitecture, Standards and Open Data. You may find some of this useful for the OpenHIE Guidebook.

I also serve as one of the co-chairs of the Global Digital Health Network. I do hope we are able to share more about OpenHIE and HIS interoperability through this Network of over 2,500 members to raise the awareness of HIS strengthening.

Looking forward to engaging with the group!

Amanda
