InteropEHRate - Interoperability Profile
The Interoperability Profile describes the structure and semantics of all data exchanged in cross-border care scenarios definied in the project interopEHRate. In addition to describing medical data, it also addresses the description of security objects such as consent and identity information and provenance data. The Interoperability Profile is based on existing standardization efforts in the context of cross-border data exchange (e.g. International Patient Summary). The domain model is modeled in Artdecor and is the basis for creating an HL7 FHIR profile and implementation guide.
InteropEHRate aims to support peoples’ health by opening them up new ways to make health data available where needed. To make this possible, key health data is managed in “patients’ hands”, i.e. through Smart EHRs (S-EHR) on mobile devices. Data is always transferred via highly secure channels including a direct device to device
In short, the project enables patients to be in full control of the usage and the routes of their health data. The central instrument, being laid in “patients’ hands” is the Smart EHR (S-EHR), leveraging a set of new protocols for secure and cross border exchange of health data.
InteropEHRate will develop open interchange protocols supporting patient-centred exchange of health records between patients, healthcare actors and researchers. Thus, the project will contribute to the next steps in follow-up of the February 2019 EC recommendation and help to pave the way towards an open European EHR exchange format and process. It will specifically add a decentral, patient-driven bottom-up approach as an alternative method to the top-down approach of exchanging patient data exclusively via the national contact for points for eHealth (NCPeH).
InteropEHRate is funded by the European Union for 42 months and is implemented by a unique consortium of experienced institutions and qualified experts. InteropEHRate partners represent healthcare solution providers, hospitals, universities and research centers as well as European and local stakeholder associations.
