To implement the interoperability part of the EU-US roadmap, the European Union funded the Trillium Bridge project (2013-2015). The project worked on an interoperability standard to bridge patient summaries and electronic health records (EHRs) between the EU and US.
The CAMEI project (2013-2015) has brought the EU-US Roadmap for eHealth into practice by addressing IT skills for healthcare workers in both the EU and the US. CAMEI coordinated research activities and policies towards the development of renewed educational material and programs, boosted new trends for acquiring new knowledge by the healthcare workforce, fostered trans-national access to research infrastructures from both EU and USA partners and established a network of best practices in Medical Education Informatics.
