Join us October 3rd at PATH at 9:30 AM EST for a discussion on Digital Health Communities!
It takes a village to make support the development, interoperability and implementation of health information systems. We spend a lot of time talking about the technology but the people are the heart of enabling appropriate and well-functioning digital health systems. This month’s Global Digital Health Network meeting will dive into digital health communities that support digital technologies.
Carl Fourie (Jembi) and Amanda BenDor (PATH) will provide a recap of the inaugural OpenHIE Community Meeting, which took place in Arusha, Tanzania in August. They will highlight the takeaways from the milestone event as well as discuss several new subcommittees emerging in the OpenHIE space. Rebecca Alban (Village Reach) will present on the OpenLMIS community and what strategies they use to engage users of OpenLMIS to ensure the software is customized to fit user needs. They’ll also highlight some of the pain points in supporting a global community, offering some tips to build a stronger digital health community behind a robust software system. Finally, Paul Biondich (OpenMRS, Regenstrief) will showcase the OpenMRS community, highlighting it’s history and ways they support their users to harness the medical records system including growing interest in OpenMRS interoperability.
The meeting will be hosted at PATH’s office in Washington, DC at 455 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001; please RSVP for the event on Eventbrite here. If you would like to attend in person, please secure a ticket by COB 10/1/18. Participants can also join remotely via Zoom at the following link: https://path.zoom.us/j/
