14 Prof. Dr. Georges De Moor, the Eurorec Institute, 20/03/ 2006, Harrogate HC2006 Conference “Making the Difference” The European eHealth Area (2004) – Electronic health cards, common approach to patient identifiers, standardisation of electronic health record architecture, secure access to personal health information; – Health information networks between points of care (with broadband connectivity where relevant); – Online health services to citizens, quality criteria for websites... This EU action was endorsed by the EU Health Ministers in June Developing Electronic Health Records was already then, one of the key policy priorities. EU eHealth area-targets:

15 Prof. Dr. Georges De Moor, the Eurorec Institute, 20/03/ 2006, Harrogate HC2006 Conference “Making the Difference” The E-Europe Action Plan (2005) – By the end of 2005: EU member states must define national and regional e- health strategies (deployment of e-health systems, use of electronic health records, interoperability and re-imbursement of health services) – By the end of 2006: identification of inter-operability standards for health data messages, electronic health records, taking into account best practices and relevant standardisation efforts – By the end of 2009: EU member states and the EC will set the baseline for standardised provision of e-health services in clinical and administrative settings E-Health was identified as one of the EC priorities, with as deadlines:

16 Prof. Dr. Georges De Moor, the Eurorec Institute, 20/03/ 2006, Harrogate HC2006 Conference “Making the Difference” Interoperability: general definitions ISO 2002:12 : Interoperability refers to the ability of two or more systems (computers, communication devices, networks, software and other information technology components) to interact with one another and exchange information according to a prescribed method in order to achieve predictable results CEN/ISSS 2005 : Interoperability is a state which exists between two application entities when, with regard to a specific task, one application entity can accept data from the other and perform that task in an appropriate and satisfactory manner without the need for extra operator intervention NAHIT (US) :Interoperability is the ability of different information technology systems, software applications and networks to communicate, to exchange data accurately, effectively and consistently, and to use the information that has been exchanged (March 09,2005)

17 Prof. Dr. Georges De Moor, the Eurorec Institute, 20/03/ 2006, Harrogate HC2006 Conference “Making the Difference” Interoperability: types Technical interoperability Organisational interoperability Functional interoperability Syntactic interoperability Semantic interoperability Political interoperability Legal interoperability Social interoperability Inter-standard interoperability Many references (IDABC/EIF 2004, CEN/ISSS 2005, NAHIT 2005, TMA 2004, Miller 2000, ETSI 2005:3, LISI …)

18 Prof. Dr. Georges De Moor, the Eurorec Institute, 20/03/ 2006, Harrogate HC2006 Conference “Making the Difference” QREC: FP6-IST4 Results of the 4 th Information Society Technology (IST4) Call for proposals under the EU’s 6 th Research Framework Programme (FP6): – 276 new research projects – with EUR 1 billion in EU funding QREC-project on « Quality Labelling and Certification of EHR systems in Europe » is a Specific Support Action (SSA) with EUR 1.3 million in EU funding.

19 Prof. Dr. Georges De Moor, the Eurorec Institute, 20/03/ 2006, Harrogate HC2006 Conference “Making the Difference” QREC: Main Objectives To develop formal methods and to create a mechanism for the quality labelling and certification of EHR systems in Europe, in primary- and in acute hospital-care settings EuroRec Institute is coordinating partner QREC has 12 partners and 2 subcontractors (project duration is 30 months from 1 Jan on)

20 Prof. Dr. Georges De Moor, the Eurorec Institute, 20/03/ 2006, Harrogate HC2006 Conference “Making the Difference” QREC: Coordination with Health Authorities The coordination with healthcare authorities will be done through the collaboration with the eHealth ERA consortium and its European Health Care Authorities (HCA) Ministries Group that is co-ordinating with several national e-Health roadmap activities within the EU-Framework Programme. Both platforms (EuroRec and eHealth ERA) will follow the necessary bottom-up and top-down approaches for the adequate assessment of needs and for the optimal choice of methods for EHRs certification in Europe.

23 Prof. Dr. Georges De Moor, the Eurorec Institute, 20/03/ 2006, Harrogate HC2006 Conference “Making the Difference” QREC: ORIGIN Several EU-member states (Belgium, Denmark, UK, Germany, …) have already proceeded with quality labelling and certification schemes, but they differ in scope, in legal framework under which they operate, in policies, in organization, in the choice of quality conformance criteria for benchmarking and testing… These differences represent a risk of further market fragmentation: harmonization efforts should help us to avoid this!

24 Prof. Dr. Georges De Moor, the Eurorec Institute, 20/03/ 2006, Harrogate HC2006 Conference “Making the Difference” EHRs Certification: the case of Belgium – Early 1998: PROREC Belgium develops a quality labelling system for EHRs in ambulatory setting (333 Quality Criteria defined) – Belgian Ministry of Public Health and Social Affairs establishes a national Health Telematics Committee and implements the EHRs certification process in Belgium (May 3,1999): – the conformance criteria list is now reduced in size (100) – the certification is a voluntary one, but is incentivized by legislation and budgets: GPs are actually paid when using certified systems (+/-750 EURO/phys. /year) – The conformance testing (initially organized on a yearly basis) is now being conducted (since 2005) on a permanent basis

25 Prof. Dr. Georges De Moor, the Eurorec Institute, 20/03/ 2006, Harrogate HC2006 Conference “Making the Difference” UK’s NHS Connecting for Health proposal for GP system choice – A multi-step accreditation process as to reach a minimum bar that will be progressively raised over time – Funding from the national programme – New priorities and services being rolled out: 1. Electronic Prescribing 2. GP to GP record transfers 3. Choose and Book services 4....
