Many countries are undertaking projects to implement interoperable, national-scale eHealth infrastructure. Interoperability relies on eHealth standards – but which standards should we use? This webinar lead by Derek Ritz introduced a “storytelling” approach to developing a National eHealth Standards Framework (NeSF). This approach is grounded in the formal practices of enterprise architecture. However, it simplifies the process and describes a step-by-step methodology that clearly connects our characteristic health stories to the standards-based eHealth infrastructure that operationalizes them.
This webinar provided an overview of the JLN-developed openHDD tool and the process used by countries in creating and using a health data dictionary. The webinar featured speakers included Michiel Berende of PharmAccess and Dr. Art Alcantara of the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth).
This webinar looks at health information system requirements through the eyes of the 4 Ps: Patients, Providers, Payors & Policymakers. Informed by insights from country experiences in Colombia, the Netherlands, the Philippines, South Africa and Thailand, a practical path forward is described.
This video illustrates a model of how eHealth affects population health and is referenced in the eBook produced by the JLN Information Technology Initiative, "Connecting Health Information Systems for Better Health: Leveraging interoperability standards to link patient, provider, payor, and policymaker data."
