What is openEHR and why is it important?

NHS Wales Informatics Services has been carrying out a technical evaluation into openEHR to test its viability as a repository for structured clinical data.

On top of this, we can build digital patient records and applications. And as it is a specification, openEHR based tools and repositories are available from several vendors but importantly, they all promise compatibility with each other's products. This means data held in one openEHR Clinical Data Repository (CDR) can be surfaced in a variety of places, natively supporting federated approaches for stakeholder organizations.

Over the past years, openEHR solutions with a multivendor environment built on an open and agile architecture have proven to be a successful approach to managing electronic healthcare records at any scale. There are several use cases with a focus on electronic health records (EHR) and related systems, validating the vendor-neutral data concept, where universal interoperability among all forms of electronic health data is ensured.To discuss these topics and present successful use cases, you are kindly invited to the 2019 openEHR day being organized by the openEHR Foundation in collaboration with Better and other partners.
