    • Able to successfully transport ADX with Disaggregations
  • Mechanism for calculating data elements
  • Not just SQL, but also tap into OpenMRS reporting framework. (Addition, not replacement.)

Background and strategic fit

  • OpenMRS-DHIS2 integration is obviously a big desire of lots of people in the OpenMRS community, and we'd like to more effectively mobilize the OpenMRS community to contribute to a preferred integration module. 

    Exciting moment: we've been exploring OpenMRS-DHIS2 connectivity for years now

    • developed something as part of HISP-India work that was very simple (and received some scorn) but worked!
    • it's in need of a revisit/rethink
    • for the first time, a possibility of an international standard for data exchange (with more legs than SDMX-HD)
    • good company of people and talent with expressed and vested interest in making this work
