Welcome to the eHealth Digital Service Infrastructure!
The eHealth Digital Service Infrastructure (eHDSI or eHealth DSI) is the initial deployment and operation of services for cross-border health data exchange under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF). eHDSI sets up and starts deploying the core and generic services, as defined in the CEF, for Patient Summary and ePrescription. The generic services are the necessary implementation of data exchange at country level, the core services at EU level. These together enable the provision of Cross Border eHealth Information Services (CBeHIS).
The eHealth Operations knowledge base hosts the eHDSI Operational Management Board (eHOMB) and eHDSI Member State Expert Group (eHMSEG). The eHDSI Operations provides a vehicle for stakeholders to handle all operational matters of the CEF eHealth eHDSI. It aims to ensure that the European Commission orchestrates the implementation process of the DSI with the committed and active participation of the Member States and to ensure user organisations and standardization bodies play a role.
