OpenHIE will host a virtual community meeting over three interactive days, September 13, 15 and 21, 2022.
The meeting, “The Journey from Plans to Practice,” will include activities focusing on networking, learning from real-world implementations and participant-led discussions. In between these meeting dates, opportunities also will be available to host ad hoc meetings and have access to additional resources.
“Days have been spread out to help accommodate busy schedules and to combat videoconference fatigue,” said Paul Biondich, M.D., M.S., a research scientist and director of global health informatics at Regenstrief Institute and a key leader for OpenHIE. “This meeting is a fantastic opportunity to share information, gain insight into digital health implementation and to connect with digital health users and experts. Our community is dedicated to improving health outcomes for resource emerging communities. We believe that best practices should be shared, not locked away.”
Open Health Information Exchange (OpenHIE), is a global community working to help resource-constrained environments better leverage their healthcare data. Formed in 2013 and based on work that initially began in 2009 to establish the Rwandan Health Information Exchange, the professionals at OpenHIE work to improve the health of the underserved through open, collaborative development and support of country driven, large scale health information sharing architectures.
