Standards and Interoperability in Electronic Health Records

Interoperability means the ability of health information systems to work together within and across organizational boundaries in order to advance the effective delivery of health care for individuals and communities. A bewildering variety of projects, initiatives and standards have been developed to support this goal from terminology standards such as SNOMED and ICD-10 to information models, messaging standards, document standards and other protocols. Some, such as the OMOP common data model, are designed to support the use of patient data in research, others are more focussed on facilitating clinical work; one, openEHR, is designed to ensure that patient data can be stored in a way which is independent of the requirements of specific system. This course provides a brief introduction to the domain, a survey of approaches and practical exercises with the key initiatives for data-intensive health research.
