Integration mechanisms with EHR and interoperability

Role this area should play in the mHealth space
mHealth-app data is valuable to share with caregivers. We therefore need to use a semantic and interoperable way to send the data from the mHealth environment to the HER and vice versa.
Current challenges and limitations
  • Standardized interoperable mechanism, like FHIR, need to be implemented in the integration mechanism. The technique is there, the implementation needs to be adopted.
  • Health and Care Information Model (HCIM) needs to be adopted and implemented
What benefit could this bring to adopters of this innovation?
A fast and secure way to enter the market and functional possibilities to enhance the products
How does it contribute to major EU policy priorities? (e.g. EHDS, COVID-19, DTHC etc.)
Essential component to focus on in connecting and integrating mHealth solutions
An absolute accelerator in the creation of a EHDS, unparalelled in connecting mHealth apps relating all sorts of subject.
