Planning Schedule

Work items

Strategy and stakeholder discussion

  • Could the patient be a stakeholder? The aim is to improve the quality of information.
    • In Netherlands a patient program called MedMij is available. This is not centralized. But PHR can certify against FHIR profiles.
    • In Belgium patients already have an individual PHR which contains partially structured data. All Belgians already have an digital ID.
    • In Switzerland Anne has to go the post office.
    • Joao mentions that a product catalogue is important. Without this you cannot make a concise medication list..
    • You also need an organization to maintain the medication structure for the catalogue.
    • This topic is likely to be discussed in Unicom as well. We should approach Unicom to investigate if there is a need for a profile.
    • Michael will approach Christian Hay to see if IHE Pharmacy could provide any added value
  • Our team needs to set up a marketing plan.
    • We need to identify the opportunities and work out the business case.
    • Nowadays a standard can only be certified if it manages to reach a certain maturity level.
    • That means that users have to implement the standard.
