During this weeks MedInfo conference members of the OpenHIE community will be presenting a workshop on “Promoting Effective Health Information Exchange in Developing Environments: An Overview, Tips, and Tactics for Engaging with the OpenHIE Community”. MedInfo is the premier international health and biomedical informatics event. This years theme “eHealth-enabled Health”, will bring world leaders in this field together in São Paulo, Brazil to share knowledge and analyze how eHealth and biomedical informatics are contributing to address some of the most challenging problems in health care, public health, consumer health and biomedical research.
Workshops at MedInfo are informative or interactive sessions that address a specific theme or topic in biomedical and health informatics. During the OpenHIE workshop, we will share three key elements of OpenHIE, including: the OpenHIE technical framework, the OpenHIE community process, and examples of implementations that leverage the OpenHIE initiative. We will further enable workshop participants to explore those elements through small group dialogue facilitated by OpenHIE community members. During the closing session participants will be brought together to help synthesize discussions and provide feedback to the OpenHIE community.
