SDMX-HD (Health Domain)
« on: August 16, 2010, 05:28:31 AM »

The World Health Organization (WHO) has adopted SDMX and implemented it in a variety of WHO and partner applications to facilitate the development of country monitoring systems. The WHO implementation is called SDMX-HD to reflect its use in the Health Domain (HD). The SDMX-HD is distinguished by its use of common and custom attributes, enabling the flexibility required for harmonization of indicators and local interoperability.

Tools are available for the SDMX-HD in .NET and Java. More information on these tools is available at www.sdmx-hd.org.

The WHO Indicator and Measurement Registry (IMR) enables the definition and harmonization of indicators and export of indicator definitions in the SDMX-HD format. A goal of the IMR is to minimize the proliferation of organization-specific DSD in health.

The public version of the IMR is located at apps.who.int/gho/indicatorregistry. Extranet accounts for indicator creation can be obtained from Patrick Whitaker whitakerp@who.int.
