Stop reinventing the wheel! Standards for the clinical structure and content of patient records form

Posted By Grant Forrest on 24-Jun 2014 at 20:46

Has this crossed anyone's radar ?

I'm interested to know if the RCP group has forged any links with Industry and EHR suppliers to implement any of their standards in the real world. There is a disappointing lack of comments on the RCP web site.

EHI did pick up the story and ran a couple of their own items :

http://www.ehi.co.uk/news/CCIO/8530/new-records-standards-body-launched

http://www.ehi.co.uk/news/EHI/8753/standards-for-eprs-launched

This generated a bit more comment, with views ranging from "waste of time, been trying and failing for over a decade" to "could be useful to developers for some applications".

In general, it was felt that the initiative had some merit but lacked the necessary detail to make a difference in the real world.

Sound familiar ?

Hi Grant and all,

I am looking into electronic records and wonder if anyone actually has electronic patient data being stored in a persistent future-proofed (ie non-propietary and open format) database. 

Thanks,

Michael
