eHealth4U: A DEMO of a Prototype National Electronic Health Record for Cyprus.
In this paper we present a demonstration of a prototype national Electronic Health Record platform for Cyprus. This prototype is developed using the HL7 FHIR interoperability standard in combination with terminologies widely adopted by the clinical community such as the SNOMED CT and the LOINC. The system is organized in such a way to be user-friendly for its users, being the doctors and the citizens. The health-related data of this EHR are separated into three main sections, being the "Medical History", the "Clinical Examination" and the "Laboratory results". Business requirements include the Patient Summary as defined by the guidelines of the eHealth network and the International Patient Summary which are used as the base for all the sections of our EHR, together with additional medical information and functionality such as the organization of medical teams or the history of medical visits and episodes of care. From the doctor's point of view, one can search for patients who have granted the doctor with a consent and read or add/edit their EHR data by initiating a new visit as defined in the Cyprus National Law for eHealth. At the same time, doctors can organize their medical teams by managing the locations of each team and the members that belong to each team.
