B2i Healthcare develops extensible open-source frameworks and tools to simplify the exchange of healthcare information. By developing robust commercial-quality tools for healthcare standards such as HL7, openEHR, and SNOMED CT, B2i supports governmental and industry initiatives to lower the barrier to building a healthcare infrastructure. Our tools are used by standards organizations and governments around the world for creating, maintaining, and conformance testing electronic health records (EHRs). Many of these tools are developed as sponsored open-source through the English National Health Service (NHS) Connecting for Health (CFH) program, the HL7 (Health Level 7) Tooling Collaborative, the Eclipse Open Healthcare Framework (OHF), and Open Health Tools (OHT). These tools are now used in Europe, Canada, and the USA--and we learn about interesting applications of our open-source products in different countries on a regular basis.
