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.

The CCIO Leaders Network supported by Digital Health are running an open survey of usability of all UK EPR systems, allowing them for the first time ever to compare and contrast systems in terms of usability.

All data will be made public for free open access use (except people's email addresses which is an optional field and will not be shared).

We hope you will support this endeavour by completing and sharing the survey as widely as possible so that it gets to the largest possible sample of clinical end users, especially front line staff.

The survey will remain live at usability.digitalhealth.net until March 2016.

Scotland ongoing review of Out Of Hours Services
A review of out-of-hours primary care services and a new approach to unscheduled care in Scotland has been launched and HANDI member, Dr Howard Leicester, is part of the Tech/Data workgroup.

Howard is looking for any case studies of Health Apps operating in Scotland, or linking with Scottish record and information systems.  An important issue is ‘accessibility’ (ease of use and understanding) because most patients turn out to be older or disabled people.

If you can help or want to know more, please EMAIL Howard.

NHS Hack Day  12th & 13th September, being held in Manchester - is a relaxed and free-form software development day, run as an unconference, allowing participants to pitch their ideas and NHS problems to the audience of developers and Health IT specialists. After pitching, teams form organically and people start working on their solutions. On the Sunday, work continues, and then the work is presented to the judging panel. Prizes are awarded, but the main point of participation is the lessons learned, the community that has formed around NHS Hack Day, and the exhilaration of helping develop software over a weekend.  Find out more HERE
