Introducing standardized electronic health record interoperability in heterogeneous systems.

In: Proceedings (International Conference on Interoperability for Enterprise Systems and Applications I-ESA'12, March 22-23 2012, Valencia, Spain). Valencia: Universitat Politecnica de Valencia, 2012.
Semantic interoperability of EHR (electronic health records) is a major challenge in medical informatics. In the presented solution the electronic commuincation barriers caused by heterogeneous EHR systems are exemplified in a regional doctors’ network in Germany.  EHR interoperability is enabled by a canonical model of clinical data using EHR standards such as ISO 13606 and ASTM CCR. In addition a server is developed which handles the data exchange so systems have to communicate only to one party. The developed server provides state of the art comunication interfaces but offers solutions for those EHR systems which cannot fulfill modern interoperability requirements. This ensures high participation within the network. The server also offers rich vizualization capabilities (that are applied on the exchanged data), this adds value to the data exchange solution.
