What is this?
Open Health Information Mediator (OpenHIM) is an open-source software application, with a zero-cost license (Mozilla Public License (MPL) version 2.0) and a publicly available code base. It enables easier interoperability between disparate electronic information systems by providing a central point where data exchange is managed. This is why OpenHIM has been implemented in a number of different projects, ranging from innovative prototypes to nationwide health systems strengthening projects.
Why was it developed?
OpenHIM was designed to facilitate interoperability between disparate information systems. It provides secure communications, data control, and support for routing, orchestration, and translation of requests as they flow between systems.
Why are we sharing it?
Due to its wide adaptability capacity in different projects that contribute to the growth of low and middle-income countries, it has multiple functions, some of which are the following: Acting as a reverse proxy for web services, extending the processing of OpenHIM requests through of intermediaries, have secure access to their web services, be alerted (when something goes wrong), re-execute failed transactions, among others. That's why OpenHIM is in continual development to meet real-world needs.
