What you get

An Electronic Health Record (EHR) specific enabler for the development of EHR applications. The EHR SE is being implemented as a BACK END API. The EHR SE can be linked with the epSOS SE and the PACs SE.

Why to get it

An electronic health record (EHR), is a systematic collection of electronic health information about an individual patient or population. It is a record in digital format that is theoretically capable of being shared across different health care settings. In some cases this sharing can occur by way of network-connected, enterprise-wide information systems and other information networks or exchanges. EHRs may include a range of data, including demographics, medical history, medication and allergies, immunization status, laboratory test results, radiology images, vital signs, personal statistics like age and weight etc.

The EHR SE will offer the capabilities to provide third party applications (such as those developed by SMEs involved in FI-PPP Phase 3) that include these functionalities as well as the possibility to communicate and exchange data between different health agencies or different departments of the same health agency.
