Jembi making headway in the international Health Informatics arena
Jembi Health Systems has taken its custom built tool to the next level at the 2013 IHE North America Connectathon in Chicago, Illinois.
Cape Town, South Africa, 31 January 2013 – Jembi Health Systems (a local NPO), based in Cape Town, South Africa has been making headway in the international Health Informatics arena, by taking an interoperability tool, OpenHIM, to compete and test with the likes of Oracle, Sysnet, and Siemens at the 2013 IHE North America Connectathon in Chicago, Illinois (28th January – 2nd February 2013).
The Open Health Information Mediator (OpenHIM) is an open source middleware system based on an ESB architecture that aims to enable easier interoperability between disparate Health Information Systems.
After a few days of testing the interoperability of the OpenHIM and its conformance to IHE profiles, Jembi can proudly confirm that all of the chosen IHE profiles: PIX, XDS and ATNA, has been certified against international standards. Each of the profiles for the OpenHIM has been verified with at least three testing partners at the IHE Connectathon in Chicago. IHE Certification provides independent, third-party assurance that this tool exhibits the robust capabilities for optimal data exchange and security to further the goal of improving patient safety and delivering higher quality of care.
Congratulations to Ryan Crichton and Hannes Venter representing Jembi, as well as Shahid Khokhar of the Regenstrief Institute, for the fantastic collaborative work and achievement.
