JEMBI/UEM-MOASIS Conducts Mozambique OpenHIM Workshop on the Integration of Health Information Systems
JEMBI/UEM-MOASIS conducted a workshop for the joint implementation of the project “Integration of Health Information Systems through the Moz-OpenHIM system to DHIS2 Platform” at the University of Eduardo Mondlane funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) to provide training on the use of OpenHIE, OpenMRS, to strengthen Mozambique’s health information systems
Maputo, 29 January 2016 – Jembi Health Systems and the University of Eduardo Mondlane (UEM) initiative “MOASIS” organized and facilitated a workshop aimed at presenting phase 1 (aggregate data) of the project “Integration of health information systems through the Moz-OpenHIM system to the DHIS2 Platform”, demonstrating the full working system “Mozambique Open Health Information Mediator” (Moz-OpenHIM and the architecture for the Open Health Information Exchange (OpenHIE). The project is an initiative funded by PEPFAR with technical support from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The goal of the first and current phase is to enable partners to send aggregate HIV data from OpenMRS to DHIS2 through the Mozambique OpenHIE architecture, the system Moz-OpenHIM and the specific OpenMRS mapping and export application that allows the mapping of all HIV indicators in OpenMRS and export to DHIS2 through the OpenHIM. The system will allow OpenMRS partners to automatically send HIV aggregate data from OpenMRS through the Moz-OpenHIM into DHIS2 and visualize the aggregate data and reports in a centralized web-based system and database, accessible to all authorized users, customized for the Mozambique environment that includes all DHIS2 features, reports, dashboards, and GIS functions.
The workshop was attended by 28 engaged participants, including a number of members from the eSaúde Community and others such as: ICAP, UCSF, FHI360, EGPAF, CCS, JHPIEGO, FGH, Pathfinder, Ariel Glaser Foundation, Dimagi, and Jembi/UEM-Moasis. All participants engaged in discussion to ensure systems integration within the community of clinical partners using OpenMRS and also participated in conversations around the current and future steps of the eSaude community from a technical, strategic and operational standpoint. By the end of the event, valuable progress was made towards establishing a common eSaude work plan among all clinical partners.
“This project was made possible as a result of a partnership between Mozambique and the American people through PEPFAR – CDC funding”.
