EHR-Q-TN: Thematic Network on Quality and Certification of EHR systems

EHR-Q-TN is a Thematic Network project that intends to better prepare the health community across Europe for systematic and comparable quality assurance and certification of e-Health products, more specifically of the Electronic Healthcare Record systems. The project fits with objective 1.6 of the 2nd Call for Proposals for the CIP-ICT PSP program: “Improving certification of eHealth products”, more specifically where the work program refers to the “good practice requirements as elaborated by EuroRec”, Most national health authorities are willing to improve the quality, the functionality and the interoperability of the existing systems on their market. Users of those systems would like to rely on a quality label when acquiring such an EHR system. Suppliers of the systems understand that quality assurance can even be profitable for their business. Starting certification nevertheless requires perseverance as it is often difficult to deploy. EuroRec is offering tools to facilitate this deployment. A number of sometimes essential stakeholders on the other hand still needs to be convinced. This project promotes certification by organising national workshops in 27 different European countries, by validating the EuroRec functional statements (over 1.400 statements), translating a substantial set of them in over 20 different European languages and by validating the EuroRec certification tools and certification procedures. The focus functionalities of the validation and the translations to be addressed during the project will be on medicinal product prescriptions, on medication management, on summary records as well as on generic statements regarding reliability and trustworthiness of the systems and on security and access management. The project will also deliver two complementary reports. The first report will be, for each of the countries involved, an as complete as possible EHR market overview encompassing the systems on the market and their suppliers as well as use
