Overview:
OpenMRS allows you to store and access patient-level medical data in a flexible and configurable way. But a true, large-scale electronic medical record requires multiple software applications, all interoperating together. A large hospital might use OpenMRS for the clinical patient record, and a separate Laboratory Information System to store detailed information about specimens and samples. Or a national-scale medical record might have OpenMRS running as a centralized database-of-record, with multiple mobile applications connecting to it.
What these situations have in common is that when systems interoperate, one typically behaves as aMaster Patient Index, allowing others to query it to find patient records.
At the MEDINFO 2010 conference (paper can be found here:  http://goo.gl/HG4ZKY), we demonstrated the potential for interoperability between OpenMRS andOpenELIS (an open-source Laboratory Information System). We wanted to describe and show a scenario where OpenMRS would be providing the master patient index andOpenELIS would be able to access patient demographic information from the OpenMRS database to avoid the necessity for dual data entry of that information into both systems. As the framework for this interoperability, we decided to implement the standards developed by the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) initiative. We successfully created a working demonstration of the concept, but more work is needed to make this interoperability link suitable for production use.
