  8. 8. 8 Innovation is where standards are most needed: to unlock data for trust & flow Today: Massive health data accumulated in silo EHR systems serving documentation purposes. We need to move from passive documentation to active use of information and knowledge creation: activation! Patient summaries defined at the macro level: cross-border exchange for emergency or unplanned care at a national level. Need to address communities and individuals! Standards and profiles address a predefined exchange of information. Need flexible use of available content and structure, recognizing national, regional or local jurisdictions trust & flow! Shaping the future: Focus on the top level: systems of innovation! Systems of record – documentation systems -EHRs Systems of differentiation – profile based data exchange Systems of innovation – unlock data and user experience + + - - C h a n g e G o v e r n a n c e HL7 Asia 2017 August 18, 2017
  9. 9. Adoption at scale calls for the collaborative use of standards eStandards has developed recommendations for increased collaboration: • Provide better linkage to professional guidelines • Put more emphasis on clinical information models • Accommodate a reliable mix of patient and provider generated data • Provide more regulatory clarity on the use of standards • Strive for coherence between terminology initiatives • Facilitate compliant localization and adaptation of standards • Provide open access tools and testing data for deployment of standards • Encourage the use of standards sets in procurement • Put in place a governance and maintenance process for standards sets 26 June 2017 eStandards Roadmap Presentation 9 Most importantly, eHealth standards need to answer the needs of the digital age.

  12. 12. AssessCT - recommendations o Any decision about adoption of terminological resources, including SNOMED CT, must be part of a wider, coherent and priority driven strategy for optimising the benefits of semantic interoperability in health data, and of the overarching eHealth strategy of the European Union and its Member States. o SNOMED CT is the best available core reference terminology for crossborder, national and regional eHealth deployments in Europe. o SNOMED CT should be part of an ecosystem of terminologies, including international aggregation terminologies (e.g., the WHO Family of Classifications), and user interface terminologies, which address multilingualism in Europe and clinical communication with multidisciplinary professional language and lay language. o The adoption of SNOMED CT should be realised incrementally rather than all at once, by developing terminology subsets that address the interoperability requirements for priority use cases and expanding these sets over a number of years. o Mechanisms should be established to facilitate and coordinate European Member State cooperation on terminology and semantic interoperability, including common areas of governance across national terminology centres, eHealth competence centres (or equivalent national bodies). o See: August 18, 2017HL7 Asia 2017

Common data structure Centrally defined attribute values Use of common data values across borders: When an identifier is specified in one place, it can be mapped to the common structure in any other country. The prescribed package ID (PCID) can be identified in country B, but the package/product is not available there. However, it can be mapped to the underlying PhPID, which in turn can be mapped to medicinal products available.

At minimum the IPS should include immunizations, allergies, medications, clinical problems, past operations and implants.”
