OpenInfobutton is an open source suite of Web services that enable infobutton capabilities within Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems. Infobuttons are context-sensitive links embedded in EHR systems. They use contextual information about the patient, user, clinical setting, and EHR task to anticipate clinicians' information needs and provide links to online clinical resources that may meet these information needs.
The OpenInfobutton project is an initiative led by the United States Veterans Health Administration (VHA) and the University of Utah, and developed by an independent open source community. OpenInfobutton has been certified through a rigorous process conducted by the Open Source Electronic Health Record Alliance (OSEHRA) community.
This site contains OpenInfobutton documentation, project updates, and other reference resources. The source code is available at the OSEHRA site and a GitHub repository. A discussion list is available for questions, bug reporting, and suggestions.
