The Open Library of HIE (OLHIE) is an online ecosystem that will allow “Authors” of HIE-related assets to share their work and provide “Readers” with real-world resources to inform their work. ◦ Interfaces: requirements, work-flow, templates, datasets, technical and user documentation ◦ Policies, tool-kits, and forms ◦ Model RFP and Contract language to encourage/require federal/state funded assets be contributed to the library ◦ Other source code for connecting EHRs, labs, pharmacies, and public health agencies
Promote reuse, cooperation, and learning in order to reduce the cost of building and operating HIE. Create a web application that allows readers to search, categorize, “like”, review, and create their own bookshelves that can be shared with other readers and inform authors. Streamlined workflow for authors to publish, version, make private, and remove assets.
Stephen says: “the HIE side of things will largely be bridged in the near and even mid term by developing interfaces… LOTS of interfaces… lots of CUSTOM interfaces… lots of EXPENSIVE custom interfaces.” Stephen Palmer Director, Office of eHealth Coordination, Texas
Accelerate connections between Health Information Exchanges (HIE). Facilitate the reuse of HIE interfaces, and other assets, especially those developed with federal or state funding. Reduce cost of interoperability Increase the potential for interoperability Promote community learning
