2nd HiGHmed Symposium

openEHR: Open Data Platforms in Medical Informatics

Symposium Overview

On Monday, 18 June 2018, the Heidelberg University Medical Faculty will host a HiGHmed Symposium on openEHR. The event aims to serve as a forum to discuss the chances and challenges of openEHR for research and healthcare provision in Germany.

In recent years, open platforms based on the openEHR standards have proven to be flexible, non-proprietary and semantically interoperable alternatives for the currently used information system architectures (monolithical, “best-of-breed“). The diverse fields of application of this approach range from health apps on the smartphone to elaborated clinical application systems, clinical registers, research data bases and national patient records.

International use cases for the successful application of openEHR, which will be presented at the symposium, include Eurotransplant, the HIMSS EMRAM level 6 certified children’s clinic of the University Hospital Ljubljana, Norwegian hospitals, 17 NHS Trusts, Genomic England and more.
