Interoperability, the gate to global market – ‘Interoperability is a mindset’


We will discuss what is new in the interoperability landscape

  • Key challenges on Interoperability in Europe and beyond
  • Recommendations on EHRx format exchanges
    Interoperability in Digital Health will allow to collect large amount of medical information from Patient and healthcare Professionals and increase the value proposition of solutions and products within an ethical and secured environment and will allow innovative research in big data and Personnalized medicine
  • International Patient Summary
    … is a standard focused on unplanned care accross national borders and give a share vision from Standard bodies (CEN and HL7) and provide a specific European guideline for IPS implmentation with two templates : HL7 CDA and HL7 FHIR. The next step is to provide an IHE Profile that can be implemented at the international level

… as a basis of future interoperability Conformity Assessment Scheme in Europe is also compliant witj International CAS such as IHE CAS or Continua Alliance certification for supporting the dissemination of products and solutions from countries to international level.

We will discuss project deployment with IHE profiles and standards, we will present lessons learnt, best practices

  • Approach interoperability using a model that is derived from the European Interoperability Framework perspective.
  • Key conditions to get to successful interoperability
  • IHE-based health information exchanges in The Netherlands and learn what value they provide to their stakeholders
  • Development of Interoperability framework in eHealth in other countries

We will present Test tools / CAS / Connectathon / Projectathon

  • Testing strategy in a project
    How to ensure data quality in a project that will support the collection of medical information for secondary use
  • How to test products and solutions for the global market
    Test tools and conformity assessment in ehealth interoperability. Quality of the test tools, development lifecycle and test processes
  • How to provide confidence to products and solutions
Agenda and learning objectives
  • how to perform mapping of healthcare organisations: people, processes and infrastructure,
  • how to formulate strategies to elicit and identify needs from patients, healthcare professionals across organizations and settings,
  • understood methodologies to translate needs into design scenarios for AI driven data solutions,
  • how to perform a data science project with use of existing data and collection of new data,
  • how to implement AI solutions in daily practice and create a process for continuous improvement.
