Abstract

Personal Health Records (PHRs) and wellness telecare systems are emerging and shall enable individuals to take more responsibility of maintaining their own health. However, practical data interoperability with existing IHE systems has been not achieved yet due the wide range of different PHR information collected by users. We describe an HL7 v3 protocol based data interoperability solution that enables seamless integration of telecare data with an existing Estonian nation-wide Electronic Health Record System targeting nation- wide Universal Health Record (UHR) data repository.
