SummaryTechnical design and documentation of the integration of healthdata for primary care (HD4PrC) in Electronic Medical Records (EMR) software

Purpose of HD4PrC

Next to the architecture for hospitals and laboratories, has developed an architecture to facilitate data collections from various primary care actors: healthdata for primary care (HD4PrC).

Following the eHealth action plan 2013-2018, all general practitioners must be connected to healthdata by end 2017. Over time, HD4PrC should become the standard tool for the collection of data for scientific and/or policy supporting purposes. Therefore, HD4PrC should cater for both primary care actors with an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) and without.

Highlighting some of the basic principles:
  • Healthdata only receives pseudonymized data (with eHealth acting as TTP)
  • Re-use of information from the primary systems (EMR) is supported and promoted
  • Two-way communication between data providers (general practitioner) and researcher is supported

Purpose of this cookbook

In this cookbook, we explain to EMR vendors how to integrate HD4PrC with their EMR. Important to note that this is only a first phase implementation, and continuous improvements are foreseen by healthdata. These improvements can come from functional requirements of the HD4PrC users or researchers (users of the collected data), but also from technical requirements from the EMR vendors. 

The cookbook can be downloaded here.
