The study on the eHealth Interoperability Framework, financed by the European Commission, has been finalised. It defines a vision of an EU eHealth Interoperability Framework.

EIF Study

The study, conducted by Deloitte Consulting, defines a vision of an EU eHealth Interoperability Framework with four levels: technical, semantic, organisational and legal. It also assesses some technical specifications from the epSOS interoperability framework and from two consortia, IHE and Continua Health Alliance, against the identification criteria of the annex II of the Regulation on European Standardization.

These results will be used to specify the deployment of cross-border eHealth services in the frame of the Connection Europe Facility (CEF), but they will also potentially be used for national, regional or project based deployments.

The study consists of five parts:

  1. Study report
  2. Vision on eHealth EIF
  3. Assessment framework
  4. First proposal technical layer 
  5. Overall executive summary
