Thematic Priorities

HL7 implementation experience from regional, transregional, or national implementation:
§ HL7 v2.x and 3.0 messages
§ Clinical Document Architecture (CDA)
§ ePrescription and eClaims
§ Collaborative use of standards, HL7 in IHE profiles
§ Terminologies, ontologies and Coding Systems
· Business Models for reimbursement & large scale deployment:
§ Global initiatives beyond HIPPA and the European Health Insurance Card (eHIC)
§ Electronic Healthcare Record: from strategy to implementation.
§ Knowledge deployment processes for education, certification
§ Legal and regulatory issues.
· HL7 standards for Security, Confidentiality and Trust.
· Beyond HL7 messages and documents. - Challenges ahead
· HL7 in consumer health:
§ HL7 v3 for Personal health records and health plans
§ environmental health and personalized health early warning (e.g. pollution, allergies)
§ HL7 CDA for Personal health devices, smart appliances, health cards
· HL7 in population health and decision support
§ epidemiology, disease surveillance and control
§ geographical information systems for population health
§ disaster medicine, emergency management and public health
§ clinical genomics and family history

IHE Europe Pharmacy meeting in Brussels

IHE is an initiative by healthcare professionals and industry to improve the way computer systems in healthcare share information.

Systems that support IHE Integration Profiles interoperate better, are easier to implement, and help care providers use information more effectively. The goal is efficient delivery of optimal patient care. Several hundred products support one or more IHE Profiles.

Integration Profiles describe clinical information management use cases and specify how to use existing standards (HL7, DICOM, etc,...) to address them. Systems that implement integration profiles solve interoperability problems.

* For equipment vendors, Integration Profiles are implementation guides.
* For healthcare providers, Integration Profiles are a shorthand for integration requirements in purchasing documents.

IHE is organized into Domains which each address problems in one area of healthcare.

This March 17th 2008 in Brussels there were 17 participants for the 2nd IHE Europe Pharmacy meeting.

There is a detailed post by Simon Letellier in Informatique M├ędicale,TIC & Pharmacie (http://simonletellier.blogspot.com/2008/03/2nd-ihe-europe-pharmacy-meeting.html), where you can be informed for all the details concerning this second meeting of the pharmacy group.

Dear Leonidas,

Just notice that my post is a "live post", notes taken during the meeting, so they are not easy reading.
Many thanks to provide this great and clear introduction! ;-)
