Promoting the collaborative development of proposals for investments in digital health global goods

Digital Square supports investments in digital health global goods, which are tools that are adaptable to different countries and contexts. Mature digital health global good software is software that is (usually) Free and Open Source (FOSS), is supported by a strong community, has a clear governance structure, is funded by multiple sources, has been deployed at significant scale, is used across multiple countries, has demonstrated effectiveness, is designed to be interoperable, and is an emergent standard application.

We are using an open proposal process. Your concept notes and proposals will be publicly posted, giving you and other submitters the opportunity to find collaborators and provide and receive feedback from your peers.

Integrating Care: Bringing Interoperability to Life

Executive Summary


LMIC’s are at an early stage of their digital health journey with a variety of disconnected systems and an early challenge with interoperability, seen across the world. To avoid a siloed healthcare IT scene in LMIC’s, impacting front line staff and patient care, baking interoperability into the fabric of Digital Goods being developed and deployed at this key time, is essential.

Integrating openIMIS with Bahmni: A Nepal-Based Proof-of-Concept Project

Notice C Opportunity: 
Announcement C1: Modular transformation of openIMIS
Application Status: 
Pending Review & Investment

Possible is an innovative, experienced healthcare delivery organization in Nepal working to transform rural healthcare to make it work for underserved populations. Our integrated hospital-to-home healthcare model includes:

  1. improved quality of care at government-owned facilities;
  2. community-based care delivered by a trained professionalized cadre of community health workers (CHWs); and,
  3. an Electronic Health Record (EHR) that includes facility-level and community-level data to enable care continuity, a holistic picture of healthcare needs, and continuous improvement of healthcare delivery.

Our facility-based EHR, NepalEHR, is Nepal’s national EMR system and is built on the OpenMRS platform, Bahmni, with embedded protocols and the ability to track patient, supply, laboratory, radiology, and pharmacy data seamlessly. Following the recent passage of Nepal’s National Health Insurance Act, Possible is beginning to accept health insurance from patients and processing claims for reimbursement. As such, in line with the openIMIS product roadmap, we are working to integrate openIMIS with Bahmni through a proof-of-concept claim submission module. The development of this solution will support the openIMIS Initiative vision of making openIMIS interoperable with national health information architectures and, ultimately, support Nepal’s path to universal health coverage.
