April 2015 – September 2020
The Open Health Information Exchange (OpenHIE) Partnership works to scale-up and advance country ownership of health information systems. Supporting PEPFAR’s Data for Accountability, Transparency, and Impact (DATIM) system, and host country governments, OpenHIE aims to increase the use of information management systems in providing new possibilities to solve public health problems. The partnership reinforces country-led processes to build and deploy interoperable health information systems in low-resource settings to improve health access and quality of care and efficiently increase productivity. OpenHIE’s architecture supports interoperability by creating a framework that maximally leverages health information standards, enables flexible implementation by country partners, and supports interchangeability of individual components. OpenHIE actively cultivates a community of diverse organizations and people who have self-organized to iteratively develop, refine, and solidify a collection of approaches and technologies – leading to reusable health information architectural frameworks that support effective implementation of country-driven workflows.
The partnership also supports DATIM, PEPFAR’s data collection platform to standardize and integrate program data for reporting, analysis and decision-making. DATIM is built on the core DHIS 2 platform and allows for data entry, analysis, visualization, and export. It provides a dashboard and reports needed to support targeted epidemic response and can potentially integrate Ministry of Health and US Government Agency monitoring and evaluation systems.
