Welcome! Please introduce yourself

Hi everyone, my name is Enoch Mwesigwa from Uganda, a Health Informatics graduate student and eager to exert myself in this space and enjoy helping put smiles on my people’s faces. I am currently studying for the exam at the OHIE Academy and am eager to be mentored and have my abilities utilized.
My favorite song, for now, is Feather on the Clyde by Passenger.

@basremsingh.em thanks for sharing this song with us. I hadn’t heard it before but really like it! How are you finding the OHIE Academy courses so far? Let me know if you have any questions or feedback. What is your passion around health informatics? Do you know what you’d like to do when you’re done with your studies?

So glad to meet you @ariba932! Welcome to OpenHIE :slight_smile:

Very uplifting song @ariba932 as the sun shines in my window this morning :slight_smile: Are you working with any particular institutions in Nigeria on a health information exchange project currently?

Hi, @jthomas sorry I have been a bit caught up, but thanks for the message. Glad you like the song. So far I am at the LOINC tutorials and they are indeed informative. Eager to start the FHIR tutorial.
I am interested in Interoperability and Enterprise architecture in the digital space.
After my studies (and hopefully even before!) I would like to be able to get my hands dirty on real-world projects implementing and developing interoperability solutions and learning how to code these solutions from scratch.
Ah, almost forgot, I didn’t get your favorite song :smiley:

No worries @basremsingh.em the community is always here :slight_smile: One thing are community tries to share with each other is the implementation projects we are working on. Last year we tried to start documenting some of these so people could better understand what others are doing. You can see information on some of these projects here, post your questions to this forum or can message me directly as well. I would also recommend taking a look at some of the impact stories our members have shared around their HIE implementations. Are you working with any groups in Uganda on projects currently?

I’m a lover of all music. One song I’m listening to right now is Give Thanks by Iya Terra.

Hi @jthomas, I am not currently working with a particular group but I’m open to being mentored.
I will go through the impact stories tonight and give feedback. Thanks for the projects link.

Have played Give Thanks by Iya Terra and I see why you’re giving it an ear, its a shift in perspective and I picked a leaf or five :smile:

Welcome @muwanguzisp, @jecihjoy, @fresnoviembele to the OpenHIE Community!

Hello everyone my name is Larry and I am a software developer and trying to understand OpenHIM

Greetings everyone! I’m David de Lorenzo , Senior Data Scientist at Neotree, a digital learning health system designed to optimize and standardize newborn care in low-resource settings. Neotree supports over 35,000 babies and more than 1,000 healthcare providers in Malawi and Zimbabwe.

I focus on quantitative analysis of routine data, managing existing datasets, and providing training support for our in-country partners. Additionally, I contribute to analyses that track Neotree’s impact on key outcomes, such as case fatality rates and adherence to WHO Quality of Care indicators, and work on optimizing clinical algorithms using statistical modeling and machine learning.

When I’m not crunching numbers or developing algorithms, you might find me running around London, where I’m based.

Looking forward to connecting and sharing ideas in the forums.

Cheers,
David de Lorenzo
