2019-11 openIMIS Developers Workshop



The program will be back-to-back with the OpenHIE Conference in Addis. We are in the process of aligning our schedule to that of OpenHIE (real-time version on their wiki), so that both events can profit as much as possible from each other. While the openIMIS sessions are generally open to the OpenHIE community (depending on the size of the room), members of the openIMIS Developers Committee are requested to be present during the openIMIS sessions.

We will try to reflect changes of the OpenHIE schedule as appropriate.Therefore this page will be frequently updated. During the workshop we suggest to keep it open on your phones and to refresh it from time to time. There will be no printout.

Overview of newly funded projects through Digital Square.

Detailed presentations of newly funded projects per work-package



Digital Square: No-Cost extension process for awards to leverage unspent funds, Carl Fourie will meet with all partners. Clear definition of what funds will be used for is needed for extension.





Bluesquare: "Building theWP2:  openIMIS community of developers for the next phase of growth"

  • WP1: Migration of the Beneficiary Enrollment Workflow to the modular platform

  • WP2: Interoperability with Product Registry (unfunded) (& VillageReach)

  • WP2: Configurable Workflow Engine (unfunded)



Notes:
WP1
- migrate enrollment module similar to claims

WP2
- list services & items
- data-only integration
- not including price lists
- support multiple languages

WP2
- plugging workflow engine on top of events, allows defining any custom actions on top of any openIMIS process





SwissTPH & SolDevelo: "Support for Formal Sector schemes and configurable claim workflow in openIMIS"

  • WP1: Formal Sector (unfunded)



Notes:
- approach of adding policy holder
- FHIR v3 does not have product, which is required to for formal sector. FHIR v4 has product. FHIR has tools to map between 3 and 4, might be able to avoid move to v3 for now. There
- How to deal with dependents? Edge case when both spouses are policy holder
- Needs redefinition when funding is available





SwissTPH: “Claim categorization using Artificial Intelligence: a proof of concept"

  • WP1: Research Phase

  • WP2: Development Phase

  • WP3: Testing Phase



- Decision whether to use an internal openIMIS module or external module
- API to integrate AI solutions
- data from openIMIS side to AI solutions
- Needs learning data
- requirement for FHIR v4
- audit mechanism may need rework (needs to know record was changed by external system, distinguish human and AI changes), otherwise minimal changes on openIMIS side, maximize use of events and FHIR API
- pull / push needs clarification





Healthix: "Formal Sector Registration and Payment-Integration” 

  • WP1: Support for Health Insurance Schemes in the Formal Sector (unfunded)

  • WP2: Integration to mobile and other payment systems (unfunded)



- mobile payment is really big in Kenya
-- reversal when application into policy is rejected
-- integration with mobile operators
- From Kenya:
-- one person can be part of multiple policy numbers if he is under multiple plans
-- HR takes care of approvals
-- Tech: Django platform & Android
-- Claim module is the same for formal and informal sector
