iHRIS Foundation

The global iHRIS community is comprised of a diverse collection of organizations, ministries, developers and eHealth leaders. Although iHRIS was launched by IntraHealth International, which has continued to decide on the direction of iHRIS, we want to ensure a proper platform exists for the voices of the global iHRIS community can be heard — and to set the future direction for iHRIS resources and tools.

This is why IntraHealth is launching the iHRIS Foundation to manage the continuing growth of iHRIS while ensuring that community needs are met. The iHRIS Foundation will support the vibrant global community using the iHRIS family of open-source software.

The iHRIS Foundation will be managed by the iHRIS Foundation Secretariat, which is looking for members.

iHRIS is free and open source software for managing health workforce information. This information helps countries address health workforce shortages and solve other challenges across the health sector.

This human resource information system (HRIS) software includes the following components:

Health Workforce Management

Health Information Systems Interoperability

Health Workforce Planning

iHRIS Foundation adheres to the Principles for Digital Development while engaging in the following community activities:

  • Supporting iHRIS engineering fellowships at regional innovation centers and hubs to support deployments and integration of iHRIS into the larger health information system
  • Developing tools and guidance for iHRIS implementers to better use iHRIS data for informed decision making
  • Ensuring compliance with OpenHIE standards. ¬†OpenHIE improves the health of the underserved through the open collaborative development and support of country driven, large scale health information sharing architectures.
