Existing law: enables treatment

 Laws for the medical professions  eGovernment law  Data protection law  Enables point-to-point data exchange  Not suited for single access all data for one patient

National EHR law : expected within months

 Enables sharing of patient related data  Data protection is primary concern ◦ Access only in context of treatment ◦ Patients have control on who may access what  Storage ◦ What, how long  ...

EHR systems: quality assessment

 Existing GP software certification (in discussion) ◦ Approval of reimbursement for treatment (eCard) ◦ Reimbursement (Social insurance) ◦ Standardised data export (Chamber of doctors)  No incentive for using quality assessed / certified EHR systems

National EHR ELGA: growing!

Central components (Built by ELGA) „Affinity domain“ (Build by HCP or vendor) Master Patient Index Local Document Registries with Repositories Healthcare Provider Index Domain … Domain B CIS GP SW CIS CIS CIS  Follows IHE IT Infrastructure (XDS, ATNA, BPC, ... )

ELGA Timeline (roughly)

 Master patient, HCP index available  Harmonised CDA available  eMedication in pilot   Security system in procurement Conformant affinity domains existing ◦ Reference domain in procurement   Reference domain go live expected 2012/13 All hospitals integrated 2014  GPs integration in full swing 2015

Possible steps to certification

„Affinity domain“ (Build by HCP or vendor) Local Document Registries with Repositories Central components (Built by ELGA) Master Patient Index Healthcare Provider Index Domain B Domain … CIS GP SW CIS CIS CIS  Security first? Then affinity domain connection? Then GP/CIS connection?

Certification priorities

 Without access rights /security there is no data exchange  This is a task in Europe  May this be a first „eHealth Certificate“ on European level?
