OpenEHR for NHS Wales

Event Details
February 16, 2021 - 10:00am - 1:00pm

This event provides an opportunity for attendees to learn about OpenEHR and broaden their understanding of this technology which is being used across a range of organizations in the UK. It will provide an overview of openEHR, reflecting on the experience gained by the NHS Wales Informatics Service as part of the formal review carried out recently.

Over the past few years, openEHR based solutions within a multivendor environment have proven to be a successful approach to managing electronic healthcare records at any scale. The technology is based upon an open and agile architecture, supporting modern, digital solutions with validated clinical models. These are stored in a vendor neutral repository and underpin the principles of universal interoperability within an open platform ecosystem.

We will cover:

  • Introduction to openEHR
  • Building an app in 7 minutes
  • Vendor neutral repositories for structured clinical data
  • Clinical models and how to govern them
  • Supporting interoperability and the open platform approach
