Supported by the European Commission under Horizon 2020, mHealth4Afrika is co-designing and validating a modular, multilingual, state-of-the-art health information system addressing primary healthcare requirements in resource constrained environments. mHealth4Afrika has co-designed a comprehensive range of functionality and medical programs in partnership with Ministries of Health, district health officers, clinic managers and primary healthcare workers from urban, rural and deep rural health facilities in Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi and South Africa. This paper provides insights into how mHealth4Afrika is leveraging HL7 FHIR to support standards-based data exchange and interoperability between Electronic Medical Records and DHIS2. This work is currently being validated in the field.
