HANDI Director Dr Ian McNicoll presented a practical workshop at Digital Health Assembly Cardiff held 10th – 12th February 2015, about building software applications that incorporate the Open Electronic Health Record Data Model.
The workshop presented an overview of the ‘openEHR’ open specification (openehr.org) and showed how openEHR tools, methods and data platform can underpin an agile, open standards-based healthcare information platform.
Using the HANDI Open Platform Demonstrator (handi-hopd.org), attendees were taken through practical examples of building vendor-neutral clinical information models.
The relationship of openEHR to other emerging agile e-Health specifications such as HL7 FHIR and SMARTPlatforms were also explored.
HANDI Health Corporate members Integrated Change have launched a free 12-step guide to writing a mobile app brief for the healthcare industry.
The 21 page document is intended to guide healthcare organisations considering developing a mobile application through the often under-valued step of writing the initial brief.
The guide to healthcare mobile app brief writing has been made available free of charge HERE
