The open source Insurance Management Information System (openIMIS) Initiative envisions a transformation into an MIS which is interoperable with national health information architectures. Digital Square, in coordination with the Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), is accepting Applications to further the development of openIMIS according to the priorities and roadmap as described on the openIMIS Wiki.

 

Technical Requirements – To be eligible for funding your concept note should include the following:

❏ A description of how your solution is interoperable with national health information architectures.

❏ A detailed description of how your solution furthers the development of openIMIS and fits within the priorities and roadmap.

❏ Discussion of project management approach.

❏ Timeline to meet deliverables.

❏ Potential obstacles and plan to overcome them.

 

Examples of investments that will be made available through this call for Applications include (but are not limited to):

  • Support the development of a community of practice for implementers and developers of openIMIS.
  • Develop a proof-of-concept claim submission, enrollment and/or enrollment verification module with a clinical point of service application using the relevant HL7 FHIR standards. openIMIS would like to see established initiatives operating at the health-facility level to be involved in the development of claiming mechanisms that are based on already existing patient-level data systems (e.g., OpenMRS/Bahmni, RapidPro, CommCare, DHIS2 Tracker, openSRP, etc.).
  • Develop synchronization services with an OpenHIE-compliant Client Registry and Facility Registry.

Applications should be developed with clearly defined and budgeted work packages for each area of activity within the openIMIS priority list. At least USD100,000 will be available to support these activities with the possibility for additional support as further resources are identified.
