About OHF

The Eclipse Open Healthcare Framework (Eclipse OHF) is a project within Eclipse formed for the purpose of expediting healthcare informatics technology. The project is composed of extensible frameworks and tools which emphasize the use of existing and emerging standards in order to encourage interoperable open source infrastructure, thereby lowering integration barriers.

About the OHF Wiki

The OHF Wiki is intended for use by developers and parties interested in the underlying architecture and day-to-day use/development of Eclipse OHF. If you are only interested in using Eclipse OHF, it is recommended that you view the documentation available on the main OHF Web Site. To help keep the Wiki and associated resources as easy to use as possible, a collection of policies and best practices governing content on the OHF Wiki is available. Please read the OHF Wiki Policies and Practices before adding or modifying content in this space.


Content for the individual OHF components have been moved to their component's respective pages. Please

OHF supports IHE transactions via regular RCP plugins support and even plain Java libraries through the OHF IHE profile implementations, and through Web Services using the OHF Bridge. The OHF Bridge provides a subset of the OHF IHE functionalities. It wraps them and expose SOAP calls that are routed to the plugins.

OHF is going to the North American 2008 Connectathon. Information for attendees using OHF is being compiled on IHE Connectathon 2008.
