Shared Health is an endeavor to create a Health Information Exchange (HIE), in mode of OpenHIE, targeting low resource settings. It intends to make exchange of health information across systems possible.

A pilot project is underway towards establishing HIE in Bangladesh, supported by Director General of Health Services, MoHFW Bangladesh. Like OpenHIE, the setup will consist of multiple components, interacting and inter-operating with each other over standard and agreed protocols and contracts. We hope through this effort, Bangladesh will be able to provide accessible and quality healthcare at "Points of Care" facilities, and the centralized Shared Health will support in decision making and improvement of health services across the Nation.

Demo environments:

HIE Systems

  1. Terminology Server -

  2. MCI Admin System -

  3. Patient Journal -

  4. DataSense -

  5. MCI Service -

  6. SHR Service -

  • Handle terminology server with care; unless you know what you are doing, please don't mess around with data setups; downstream systems interpret and use the terminologies organized in a certain way!

  • MCI and SHR services are headless services. You need to authenticate with IdP first to be able to invoke any APIs on them (the same with any other services). Unless you are integrating/developing over them, you shouldn't have to use the services at all. Please contact us if you do need to.

Reference Client Systems

  1. Hospital 1 - 

  2. Hospital 2 - 

  3. Cloud hosted instance for multiple community clinics -

Note, the above links are meant only for demo/showcase purpose. For production links and references, please contact DGHS, MoH, Bangladesh

While we encourage you play around with the systems, note that data might be erased on periodic upgrade. We try to keep the system as operational as possible, but do expect occasional hickups! Send us a mail if you find anything breaking or non-functional. Bug reporting is welcome, help us to make things better. 

CD environment:

Our QA and demo/showcase environments are integrated as part of our build pipelines. While pushes to demo environments happen less frequently (twice a week), note that systems might completely destroy their states, and hence data may be purged.
