Tomorrow’s meeting will be especially good as we have had quite a bit of progress and much to update the community on since our last call. In advance of tomorrow’s call please take the time to review the following links as we’ll be discussing them in greater detail.
1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=As84eHT0puU&feature=youtu.be – This is a narrated presentation by Carl Leitner on the proposed OpenHIE installation to support the immunization registry in Tanzania. This is a very helpful presentation on how the HWR fits within the OpenHIE architecture using the use case of immunizing children. It demonstrates very well the use of standards and how the various HIE component technologies interact with each other. I would us to produce something very similar though highlighting more specific human resource use cases.
2. http://ohie.a2hosted.com/health-worker-registry/- This is the dedicated HWR Community page within the OpenHIE website. It is currently just a template and we will be responsible for developing the content. I would like to get everyone’s initial input on what type of content we should develop for this page and if any one has any comments on the current layout.
If you have any additional topics that you would like to discuss during this call, please let me know and I would be happy to add same to the agenda. If you require that I call you in, please provide me with a phone number to best reach you at in advance of the call.
