DHIS2 + OpenMRS Integration: Anyone with a use case?

Dear Community,

Thanks to a number of in-person events this year, I’m delighted to announce the DHIS2 interoperability team will be meeting with our Global Product Support team / FHIR squad reps very soon to discuss in more detail how DHIS2 and OpenMRS could create easier integration specifically via FHIR. (eg See DHIS2 & FHIR website here.)

We are specifically looking for any real-world use-cases to help encourage this initiative and show there is tangible demand.

Please share here if you can think of any real-world use cases where you’d want to see easier, FHIR-based integration (rather than using e.g. the 1:1 integration folks do now) with DHIS2 ↔ OpenMRS.

Thank you!

Hello @grace,

Here is the main use case for MSF right now:

  1. Syncing patients from DHIS2->OpenMRS when starting the implementation
  2. Sending patients and their observations to Tracked Entities from OpenMRS->DHIS2

So far the tested approach is to use OpenFN as a middleware for mapping and syncing data, based on API events/hooks. Here are the slides and the explanation/demo video.

Is there anyone who heard about use cases with FHIR in the middle?



Hello @mozzy @reagan , Is this something you guys have implemented at U-Wash.? :wink:
