OpenLMIS is designed to be interoperable with other key health information systems
Interoperability is essential to ensure supply chain efficiency, and to provide maximum value and flexibility to countries and programs.
Through application programming interfaces (APIs), OpenLMIS makes it simpler to achieve interoperability with other health systems.
APIs enable programs to “talk” to one another, connecting OpenLMIS to other systems such as:
→ ERP and warehouse management systems like Sage or Epicor
→ HMIS systems like DHIS2
→ Mobile data collection apps like OpenSRP and CommCare Supply
In Tanzania, OpenLMIS is integrated at a national level with the country’s warehouse management software (WMS) Epicor 9, and also with CommCare Supply (ILS Gateway) for mobile data collection at the facility level
In Zambia OpenLMIS is integrated with the MACS warehouse management software
