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.

Integration of the OpenELIS Open-Source Laboratory Information System with Leading Clinical and Logistics Information Systems

Notice C Opportunity: 
Announcement C0: Global Good Software Development and Support
Application Status: 
Not Governing Board Approved

Laboratory information systems (LIS) are a critical component of national health information systems architectures. Clinicians, lab professionals, national health sector leaders, and the donor community look to lab data to improve patient care and treatment, assist laboratories in achieving accreditation, support disease surveillance efforts, and inform outbreak responses. As low and middle income countries progress in development of coordinated eHealth investments, LIS can be leveraged to integrate with other clinical information systems and with disease surveillance and reporting systems toward public health goals. This proposal will integrate the OpenELIS open-source LIS with the OpenMRS electronic medical record (EMR) (https://openmrs.org/), with the integrated Bahmni clinical information system package (https://www.bahmni.org/), as well as with the OpenLMIS logistics management information system (LMIS) (http://openlmis.org/). This proposal will undertake core work to facilitate integration with these leading open-source products.

I. Executive Summary

When developing new software functionality or better dashboards, or exploring new approaches like machine learning, software developers use “synthetic data”—fictional data built of anonymized data that is realistic but not real. For the United States and a few other medically advanced countries, the Synthea Data Generator is a widely used open source tool to create hundreds of millions of realistic but fake patients. However, there isn’t a synthetic data generator for any developing country.

I. Executive Summary

Current global digital health goods like DHIS2, OpenMRS, and iHRIS have their own siloed reporting systems, which are functional for viewing each system’s data independently but prevent comprehensive reporting and data analysis across systems. In addition, software developers need to continuously recreate specific dashboards for each system as users seek new ways to analyze data. This inability to create unified data analysis and dashboards impacts all levels of health care systems.

Health and medical infrastructure is generally poor in Africa. Some of the major problems encountered in Senegal and elsewhere on the continent are similar and result very often in poor care services : Patients and carers often do not have ways to access or engage with information to properly manage the patient’s health. Obtaining and managing information across sources can be frustrating, difficult, and sometimes impossible. In addition Health care providers have insufficient access to Patients medical information for adequate decision making and to coordinate care. In the absence of readily available information, care providers face a decision to either (1) go through a time-consuming process to collect health information, or (2) make decisions on incomplete information, and/or rely on the recollection. Finally patient medical files are often incomplete,when existing, and this also leads to additional financial burden for social security funds and/or the patient. The siloed patient medical  information landscape constrains the ability for countries  to embrace innovative models of care. In fact,in this context, Policy makers, service planners and researchers have limited views of health data to support policy, investment, and service development planning decisions at the local, regional, and national level. Very often heavy investment and infrastructure are required and countries have budgetary problems.

PHYLAXIA system, a secured ,green IT, patient health electronic information system, provides a holistic, simple, economical and highly efficient solution. PHYLAXIA will benefit the entire population but can also be targeted to serve specific populations: students, police or army (specific card format), mother/child, VIP( encryption).It ensures an optimal merging of the Patient Medical Information into a single digital format, to better coordinate patients support and optimize the performances of their examinations by medical healthcare professionals. It is a neutral archive Patient Information & Archiving Health Solution containing a patient’s lifelong medical history. Phylaxia breaks down information silos, dicomizes all medical data  regardless of existing IT solutions and bridges all data sources. It allows telemedicine and medical Information is also available through smartphones and tablets, although current smartphones or tablets screen definition are not optimized for DICOM images or videos.

PHYLAXIA does not require heavy infrastructure and is accessible with any PC, with or without internet access. It is adaptable to any country or hospital or medical centre.  Phylaxia has in-built software allowing for auto launch and updating without the need for 3rd party software at the service provider. Phylaxia unifies all patient information onto a single personal storage format and ensures that medical data can be shared between all hospital management systems. The Phylaxia system implementation will result in important financial and operational savings for hospitals and medical centres and in better health care for Patients.
