EuroRec: Euroropean institute for health records

The European Institute for Health Records (EuroRec) is an independent not-for-profit organisation, promoting in Europe the use of high quality Electronic Health Record systems (EHRs). EuroRec undertakes activities that support the effective and meaningful use by healthcare professionals of high quality and interoperable applications, meeting well-specified functional, content-related, interoperability and governance requirements. As the most experienced European certification body, one of its main missions is to support EHR system conformity assessment and quality labelling by defining relevant functional and non-functional criteria. Quality assessment and certification of EHR systems is essential for the safe and cross-border provision of care to citizens across Europe. EuroRec currently holds the pre-eminent position in Europe as the Institute with the most experience, methodologies, tools and criteria repository to support EC country and multi-national quality labelling initiatives (Belgrado Declaration). EuroRec was recently commissioned by the European Institute for Innovation through Health Data ( i~HD ) to develop a Quality Seal for Research Platforms.

Announcement from the EMIF project

Sign up for the IMI-EMIF symposium on April 18th in Brussels

European Medical Information FrameworkIMI-EMIF would like to invite you to its public symposium: ‘Liberating Evidence from European Health Data – the Achievements and Challenges of a Five Year IMI Project: EMIF’ that is to be held on the 18th of April 2018 at Hotel Bloom, Brussels, Belgium.

This meeting will bring together a large variety of stakeholders to discuss the value of re-using healthcare data, how the new GDPR will affect the re-use of healthcare data, how we can better involve patients, a forward projection on the evolution of the healthcare data ecosystem, etc…. A high-level version of the agenda can be found here. Throughout the day, there will be ample opportunities for networking as we bring together stakeholders from other healthcare data consortia, representatives from IMI, the European Patient’s Forum and many others.

Participation in this event is free of charge, but we kindly ask you to register for the meeting online by April 1, 2018 at the latest by filling in this form. Please do not hesitate to register as spots are limited and registrations will be processed on a first come, first served basis.

More information on the venue can be found here. Please do not hesitate to contact us at for more information.

This will be a great meeting at which to learn about important novel advances in our knowledge about diseases and treatments, from using big health data. The networks, architectures and tools that can be used for European scale research will also be demonstrated.

Dipak Kalra, President i~HD

Active R&D projects

European Medical Information Framework

European Medical Information Framework The EMIF project aims to develop a common information framework of patient-level data that will link up and facilitate access to diverse medical and research data sources, opening up new avenues of research for scientists. To provide a focus and guidance for the development of the framework, the project will focus initially on questions relating to obesity and Alzheimer’s disease.



C3-Cloud will establish an ICT infrastructure enabling a collaborative care and cure cloud to enable continuous coordination of patient-centred care activities by a multidisciplinary care team and patients/informal care givers. A Personalised Care Plan Development Platform will allow, for the first time, collaborative creation and execution of personalised care plans for multi-morbid patients through systematic and semi-automatic reconciliation of clinical guidelines, with the help of Decision Support Modules for risk prediction and stratification, recommendation reconciliation, poly-pharmacy management and goal setting. Fusion of multimodal patient and provider data will be achieved via C3-Cloud Interoperability Middleware for seamless integration with existing information systems. An Integrated Terminology Server with advanced semantic functions will enable meaningful analysis of multimodal data and clinical rules. Active patient involvement and treatment adherence will be achieved through a Patient Empowerment Platform ensuring patient needs are respected in decision making and taking into account preferences and psychosocial aspects. Co-design and 4-layered multi-method multi-stakeholder evaluation will lead to a user friendly solution. To demonstrate feasibility, pilot studies will focus on diabetes, heart failure, renal failure, depression in different comorbidity combinations. Pilots will operate for 15 months in 3 European regions with diverse health and social care systems and ICT landscape, which will allow for strengthening the evidence base on health outcomes and efficiency gains. C3-Cloud adaptive patient pathways and organisational models validated by patient organisations and a clinical reference group, change management and training guidelines will be shared with the European community. Commercial exploitation of C3-Cloud integrated care solutions will be facilitated through an Industry Vendor Forum and commercial EHR/PHR products of 3 leading SMEs.
