Invitation to Participate in Workshop about Medical Records Online in Conjunction with the EHiN – ETC conference in Osto the 14th of November 2016

Patients’ digital access to their health record: A service for all?

To increase patients’ empowerment and involvement in their own health, several countries have decided to provide patients with digital access to their health record. The approaches differ between and within countries; in some regions most of the journal is digital accessible for patients and in other regions, only a subset of the journal is available online. Based on the experience with patients’ digital access to their health record, the workshop will explore the rationale for designing the service: Is the ambition a digital copy of the full journal for all patients, and if not, what is the rationale for excluding certain groups or types of documents? The workshop aims to increase the knowledge in Europe regarding the patients’ access to their health record by discussing technical, legal, organizational, practical and cultural barriers for a service for all, as well as investigating possibilities for the future.

The workshop is targeting everyone who has experience with using, planning, implementing, or researching a service for patients’ digital access to their health record. The workshop, which is dependent on active participation in discussions, is open for EHIN-participants by special registration on a first come first served basis as there is a maximum number of places. Deadline for registration is 7 November. Participants will receive material prior to the workshop to read as a preparation for the workshop. The workshop is organized by the Norwegian Centre for e-health research and the DOME research consortium, coordinated by Uppsala University, Sweden.
