OpenHIE In-Person Meetings Through the Years

In 2018, at our inaugural face-to-face meeting in Tanzania, 186 stakeholders, implementers, and subject matter experts from over 60 organizations came together to share stories, learn more about interoperability, and collaborate on solutions for health information exchange.

In 2019, more than 220 participants representing 71 organizations from 25 countries were hosted by the Ethiopia Ministry of Health to learn about and discuss how to better utilize OpenHIE’s architecture to enhance data for decision making. 

In 2023, Malawi will host our 3rd face-to-face OpenHIE Community Meeting in Lilongwe. Get information as it becomes available by following @OpenHIE on Twitter or as details become available on this page:
