The NIC's Project Unify has a close relationship with open-source communities developing the various technologies we are specifying. As the Project Unify community of practice advocates for the use of standards, it is important to have a growing body of open-source code that demonstrates these standards and Unify blueprints.
The following open source projects are currently influencing and implementing Unify technologies:
HSLynk is a model for non-clinical human services systems in the Project Unify proof of concept. HSLynk is not an end-user software; rather it is a platform for communication with third-party apps, person records matching, client consent enforcement, fine-grained access control and external push notifications. HSLynk is fully API driven and can receive random information into its built-in Data Lake. As such, it is suited for communicating with the Project Unify User Interface (UX), as Unify UX stores and accesses Fast Health Information Resources (HL7® FHIR®), National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) and other human services payloads to and from HSLynk.
Founded by clinicians, MayJuun’s mission is to streamline the user experience of healthcare technology. The company makes healthcare-focused apps so that users can spend their time with the patient, not the computer.
MITATAC - Person Matching - Dave Walsh
The goal of the MITATAC Person Matching project is to leverage other aspects of Project Unify (such as Unify UX) and to harness the data available in the MiHIN Interoperability Land repository to match persons across the various domains of Project Unify.
The Omnibus Care Plan (OCP) is a patient-centered, standards-based, single-source care plan management system accessible to both the patient and the patient's Care Team. It supports documenting the relevant care plans and treatment information across care teams and with patients. The OCP web application includes patient-engagement and referral capabilities, as well as a care plan using Veterans Administration-defined clinical pathways for opioid management and suicide prevention.
Consent2Share (C2S) is an HL7® FHIR® Consent-based HL7® Clinical Document Architecture (CDA®) redaction service. It is bundled with Omnibus Care Plan (above). We call it out separately since it has informed Unify work on Consent Service Utilities.
The LEAP Consent Decision Service project is focused on standardization and implementation of a scalable patient-consent service based on the HL7® FHIR® Consent resource.
