Interoperability between applications is important and creates a bridge between and facilitates data exchange between eHealth applications. In this study, we assess the existing Laboratory Information Systems (LIS) and Electronic Medical Record (EMR) for data exchange interoperability in Ethiopia with the view to proposing and developing a data exchange interoperability framework. We applied a qualitative research method to explore the status of e-Health applications (LIS and EMR) based on functional test done. Using a constructive method, a data exchange interoperability framework on eHealth applications was designed. NVivo-10 software was used for coding the interview and data analysis. The framework is tested by the developers and decision makers. The proposed and designed framework is encouraging for future change.
