This article describes the architecture of an EPR system developed for the PropeR project. This EPR system not only aims at supporting home care of stroke patients, but is also designed in such a way that it can be ported to other medical services without much effort. We will briefly describe the Stroke Service and the related PropeR project. Starting from(More)
OBJECTIVES Identification and analysis of privacy and security related issues that occur when health information is exchanged between health care organizations. METHODS Based on a generic scenario questions were formulated to reveal the occurring issues. Possible answers were verified in literature. RESULTS Ensuring secure health information exchange(More)
BACKGROUND Future-proof EHR systems must be capable of interpreting information structures for medical concepts that were not available at the build-time of the system. The two-model approach of CEN 13606/openEHR using archetypes achieves this by separating generic clinical knowledge from domain-related knowledge. The presentation of this information can(More)
The PropeR project studies the effect of Decision Support in an Electronic Health Record system (EHR) on the quality of care. One of the applications supports a multidisciplinary primary care team rehabilitating stroke patients in their home environment. This project required an EHR system that could handle information of multiple disciplines and multiple,(More)
PROBLEM The combination of a computer-based patient record and a decision-support system (DSS) may give physicians the decisive push they need to accept such systems. In the PropeR-project we determine the requirements for a generic interface between both these systems and evaluate its potential impact on patient care. This article reports results from the(More)
Semantic interoperability should not only cover system interpretation of incoming information, but should be extended to include screen representation. This article describes a two-model approach to generate a screen representation for archetype-based information, which is inspired by the two-model approach used by openEHR for their archetypes. It provides(More)
INTRODUCTION The PropeR EHR system (PropeRWeb) is a multidisciplinary electronic health record (EHR) system for multidisciplinary use in extramural patient care for stroke patients. DESIGN The system is built using existing open source components and is based on open standards. It is implemented as a web application using servlets and Java Server Pages(More)
