Logica’s OSEHRA Archive holds ~1.5TiB of digital content that OSEHRA physically mailed to Logica as part of its transfer and closure process.
While OSEHRA closed as of February 14th, 2020, Logica’s OSEHRA Archive continues to promote Open Source solutions within worldwide EHR and health IT communities. The most directly useful selections are available via links on this page.
Files either too large for 24/7 availability, or that are available from a more appropriate source are intentionally available only by request via the member Help Desk. These “upon request” assets include:
- Virtual machine images, such as for eHMP and FOIA VistA. (~600 GiB uncompressed)
- Docker Hub image snapshots. (~200GiB uncompressed)
- GitHub repository snapshots. (See below for notes on GitHub migrations. Closure snapshot is available in a ~70GiB archive.)
Please let us know immediately if you encounter any credentials or sensitive information within the OSEHRA archive. We were told that sensitive or encumbered assets would be deleted prior to asset transfer, but due to the magnitude of the dumps are not able to provide independent verification.
To assure continued availability of OSEHRA’s assets and avoid “abandonware” issues preventing adoption, you may see a “Logica” copyright statement added to some transferred assets. This has only been done for license continuity; that is, to assure that a legal U.S. non-profit entity continues to offer the code and other assets available free of charge, worldwide. As was the case before, no warrantees or claims are made as to fitness for purpose of any OSEHRA intellectual property.
Technical Replication & Virtual Machine Notes
The online archives are optimized by cost profile for long-term sustainability on Amazon Web Services Simple Storage Service (AWS S3). Large files are archived into the S3 Glacier storage class and take several hours to become available from “cold” storage. That is, large images are available “on demand” after a ~4 hour restoration delay from darkive (aka “Glacier”) storage initiated by us. Do not attempt to “leach” the entire online archive from these links. If you would like a complete replica, make a Help Desk request to discuss options.
Tech Journal Archive
The OSEHRA Tech Journal Archive is a ~120GiB trove of information and software that ran from 2011-2019. You may browse the archive online, though any embedded links may be broken. Please contact us for a complete copy.
OSEHRA held annual summits, routine webinars and myriad special events, many of which were recorded and published. Logica has transcoded most videos to H.265 high-efficiency video format: reducing original file size over 80% on average with no discernible quality loss. The original (much larger) files are not available via web archive, but available via Help Desk request.
YouTube Training Playlists
OSEHRA maintained a library of CPRS, VistA, and Open Source-related sessions, mostly for training purposes. Some of these are/were still published as YouTube playlists. The source videos are available, here:
ViViaN FOIA documentation is available for live web browsing via WorldVistA’ s ViViaN website. If you would like a complete ~1.9GiB .zip copy of OSEHRA’s final January 2020 build, you may download it directly from us.
OSEHRA stewarded a large volume of code and documentation in use globally. Source code has been disbursed to several places using the following rules of thumb:
- OSEHRA’s GitHub repositories pertaining to VistA have moved to WorldVistA’s GitHub account.
- All other repositories — including VHA knowledge content assets, architectural projects, and Synthea-based derivatives — have moved to Logica’s GitHub account.
- code.osehra.org is available as a complete .zip archive, below.
The source archives linked below contain assets previously on code.osehra.org:
- clients.zip – VistA and RPMS Windows Clients
- content/named.zip – Images used with Github Documentation in OSEHRA/VistA repository
- content/SHA1.zip – KIDS files used by the autopatcher
