Data is the most long-lasting area of health IT. For modern healthcare systems, just having open interfaces is no longer enough.
The clinical information model is at the heart of any healthcare information system. It can be considered as the common language between clinicians and the healthcare system. The overall aim is to provide sharable, stable, and organized structure of knowledge in the healthcare domain. To achieve this, the information model should be in a lasting, standardized format.
Clinicians need to be in the driver’s seat while adapting the healthcare systems. They need to be able to do it in a safe and standardized way and in international co-operation. Healthcare information systems need to provide such tools and methods for clinicians that they are able to make the required clinical adaptations safely and based on standard models.
Until recently, there have not been any feasible options for storing clinical data in a lasting, vendor-neutral format. But now by using openEHR as the standard for your vendor-neutral long-term clinical data repository, you have a mature way of implementing that.
