Foto: Fröken Fokus Health Informatics Centre a collaboration between Stockholm County Council and KI Health Informatics Centre, Dept. of LIME and Dept. of Medicine (MedSolna), KI Meaningful use of EHRs in Sweden Sabine Koch
Foto: Fröken Fokus Swedish Healthcare 9 million inhabitants 21 self-governed regions/county councils with responsibility for hospital and primary care 290 self-governed local authorities with responsibility for healthcare of the elderly and functionally disabled Legislation of healthcare on a national level – the Parliament Sabine Koch, October 29, 2010
Foto: Fröken Fokus IT an integrated part of Swedish healthcare Electronic patient record (4 companies comprise 88% of the market) –100 % of all documentation in primary care is electronic – 97 % in hospitals – 97 % in psychiatry – >90 % in ambulances (with direct communication to hospitals) Sabine Koch, October 29, Clinical champions supported by strong administrators + Collegial pressure / peer influence/ larger group practices in PC + Culture – Sweden as high-tech innovative country + Use of an unique national patient identifier + User centricity -Too many different, incompatible systems with local terminology (27 different products in 1994)
Foto: Fröken Fokus IT an integrated part of Swedish healthcare e-Prescriptions –80 % of all pharmaceutical prescriptions in Sweden are issued and transferred electronically Sabine Koch, October 29, Only one national provider of pharmacy retail from (Apoteksbolaget AB) - Decision support during prescription process is still lacking behind: In Sweden some 3000 deaths yearly are estimated to depend on medication errors.
Foto: Fröken Fokus IT an integrated part of Swedish healthcare National Quality Registries 60+ national quality registries containing individual-level data on diagnoses, treatment interventions and oucomes, organized by condition Sabine Koch, October 29, Decentralization + Peer influence and practical use + Quality assurance – can be used for research - No interoperability between registries - Integration with EHR is lacking

SNOMED CT (member of IHTSDO) Patient Data Act (since July 2008) Source: Swedish National eHealth Strategy, 2006 and its yearly updates
Foto: Fröken Fokus The best tool is useless if you dont know how to use it ! Its a knife to open letters with. What a stupid invention! Meaningful use?
Foto: Fröken Fokus Meaningful use in Sweden Towards process support at the point of need Handling patient information across organizational boundaries independant of EHR Meeting the needs of several stakeholders
Foto: Fröken Fokus Most important challenges Implementation is done locally but with a national consensus will it be the same for quality registries? legal and privacy issues? evaluation of the effects? education? implementation hampers interoperability – compliance with international standards?
