Integration of Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (HL7 FHIR) into the openIMIS open source health insurance management system (Bachelor Thesis, Finished)


Faris Ahmetasevic


The Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH) is part of the openIMIS Initiative, which consists of organizations from all over the world that have joined forces to set up a health insurance system. The goal of the open source Insurance Management Information System (openIMIS) is to provide insurers with a low cost solution for managing health insurance schemes and to give policyholders a way to administer their schemes with their mobile phones.

However, the difficulty is that healthcare data must be accessible anytime and anywhere to interact with other hospital management systems. Health Level 7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (HL7 FHIR) is used to ensure this exchange of data. Since openIMIS uses FHIR version 3 interface and therefore many relevant attributes for the administration of insurance are missing, the objective of this bachelor thesis is to extend these attributes to FHIR version 4.
