vitagroup is a global manufacturer which brings digital progress to healthcare every day! 
Only with the control over data the advantages of digitalisation can be used in a future proven way. The solution is to store health data in a vendor-independent data repository by separating the data from applications and logic. This allows full control over data. True vendor independence also requires an open core, which is supported by vitagroup in the form of the open source stack 'EHRbase'. With the 'HIP CDR' as a commercial offer based on 'EHRbase', vitagroup enables a complete range of tools, plug-ins and features that are needed to operate a clinical data repository.
