OpenHIE Academy is a community-supported initiative to build capacity for better health information exchange architecture processes.  To promote a vision of  a strengthened interoperable digital health ecosystem for better health in Asia, Asia eHealth Information Network (AeHIN) aimed to support 45 members with the cost for OpenHIE Academy’s Foundations in Health Information Exchange – Certification Exam (USD 39 per person) in 2023. 

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 The members who signed up for the course would be required to complete the certification exam within four weeks. 

There were 40 participants who completed the certification exam as of 31 Dec 2023 (Table 1).
