M7 | Integrated Healthcare

Technology module

Healthcare of a patient involves many stakeholders, who work and live in different places in various circumstances, using a variety of tools, and processing specific parts of the electronic health record. Integrated healthcare allows the development of state of the art eHealth tools, which provide every stakeholder with efficient access to the data required for their work. This ensures personalised care plans for every patient available to all stakeholders, avoiding duplicate examinations and contradictory medications and facilitating optimised cost structures. Integrated healthcare eliminates proprietary data formats that lead to isolated data silos and stand-alone systems. Isolated systems do not extend potential benefits to their users, and cause high deployment and maintenance costs. The module will focus both on clinicians’ requirements such as interoperability and on the importance of patient empowerment in order to improve the entire healthcare journey.

Learning objectives

Knowledge about eHealth tools used by clinicians to conduct the health care process and the underlying data standards, tools used by patients for their empowerment, interoperability, storage and usage is essential for optimizing the health care process of eHealth organisations and for the patients themselves.

Health care of a patient is usually done by many stakeholders at different places under different circumstance using different tools and processing specific parts of the electronic health record of this patient. Connected health according to eHealth data standards allow the development of state of the art eHealth tools that provide every stakeholder efficient access to the data required for his/her work. This ensures personalised care plans for every patient avoiding duplicate examinations, contradictory medications and optimized cost structures. Connected health eliminates proprietary data formats that lead to isolated data silos and standalone systems. Isolated systems do not enfold full potential benefits to their users and cause high deployment and maintenance costs.
