The Asia eHealth Information Network (AeHIN), with the support of the Patrick J. McGovern Foundation, released the call for applicants to OpenHIE Academy’s Foundations in Health Information Exchange (HIE) Certification Exam in June 2022.

In this program, AeHIN supported individuals with the cost of taking the OpenHIE certification exam (39 USD). All the courses and materials to prepare for the certification exam are free through OpenHIE Academy.

The certification exam designates that the certificate holder “understands the basic concepts of interoperability, understands the basic function of health information exchange and the OpenHIE Architecture components, can designate which HIE architecture components are needed to solve a health data exchange challenge, and has a basic understanding of the importance of semantic and syntactic standards.”1

We are happy to announce the 30 participants who completed the certification exam as of December 8, 2022 (Table 1).
