InteropEHRate Scenarios and Data flows – Progress documented at Mid-term public workshop
InteropEHRate – Interoperable EHRs at user edge – helps to pave the way towards an open European EHR sharing process. Project partners jointly develop open interchange protocols supporting patient-centred exchange of health records between patients, healthcare actors and researchers.
We welcomed stakeholders, experts and industry to see our first results with demos and to debate this and future plans.
