Health Metrics and Indicator Reporting

In most countries, there is a desire to have health system metrics that provide a picture of health status at national or regional levels.  This community’s mission is to further develop standard practices for achieving sustainable interoperability required to calculate and track health metrics (indicators) efficiently and practically. It aims to make a wide range of information available to empower communities, health workers, and decision-makers to improve the overall coverage, quality, and efficiency of healthcare services.

The software component should be flexible enough to be meaningfully deployed in the absence of other components but should be able to interoperate with other OpenHIE components as and where they are deployed.
