eStandards organises a tutorial during the "Informatics for Health 2017" event

Tips and Tricks for your next digital health project:

How to develop clinical content specifications and achieve interoperability

Saturday April 22, at 13:00-16:00, Hilton Doubletree, Manchester

In this tutorial, the audience will explore the eStandards clinical content development guideline and quality management system for interoperability testing. Real examples from the national context of Denmark, Norway, the UK, and Europe as a whole will be the topic of hand-on exercises.

Why this is an important topic?

The emerging data driven economy has a strong impact on health care. Precision medicine, population health, learning health systems are keywords that aim to capture the potential of using clinical data in health care for higher quality, access, and productivity in healthcare. However, for this promise to materialize, developing interoperable clinical content specifications and standards of high quality is of paramount importance.

eStandards has developed a guideline for clinical content development and a quality management system for interoperability testing. In a hands-on workshop the audience will explore the guideline through real examples from the national context of Denmark, Norway, the UK, and Europe as a whole.

eStandards is an initiative bringing together Standards Developing Organizations, competence centers, and health care experts with the vision of a global eHealth ecosystem where people (digital natives and immigrants) receive timely safe and informed health care, anywhere around the globe interoperability assets fuel creativity, entrepreneurship, and innovation. In this global ecosystem eStandards, standards for the digital age, nurture large-scale eHealth deployments & strengthen Europe’s voice and impact enable co-creation on a trusted provider-vendor dialog on costs, plans, and great expectations.
