Dealing with healthcare IT and especially with clinical information is complex, and the solutions provided for clinicians have sometimes been suboptimal and not lasting in the long-term. But why? And how could this be done better and faster? Or is that possible?
Doing standardization on a single EHR platform is not cost-effective or future-proof. openEHR is the international standard for building clinical data repositories (CDR) that are future-proof and flexible.
Interview with Johan Höglund and Tomaž Gornik, Co-Chair of openEHR Foundation and CEO at Marand.
Electronic health records (EHRs) are stored on closed systems. This is the biggest obstacle to fully digitalizing healthcare. In Sweden, Tieto wants to lead the way in building open ecosystems for EHRs and believes this will improve healthcare and even create jobs.
Tieto has taken a major step in healthcare system development towards an information model that supports open and international standards. The information model aims to improve the effectivity and quality of care and to reduce costs.
The chosen model, openEHR, enables the best utilization of international and national clinical information and care recommendations, as well as fast organization-specific adaptation.
The future of healthcare and social welfare information and systems is structured, open and adaptive. The amount of data will increase exponentially. The faster patient and customer information will become structured, the more versatile the utilization of the data will be.
If Sweden is to be the world's best on e-health, we need to increase its IT budget and invest in partnership and innovation. Johan Höglund, Head of Healthcare and Welfare at Tieto, reflects on how eHealth should go from vision to action.
Tomaž Gornik, CEO of Marand and Johan Höglund, Head of Healthcare, Welfare and Education for Tieto, discuss the value of openEHR for healthcare services. Interviewed by Hanna Brodda, MedTech Magazine.
