The Electronic Patient File – Medically Supervised Data Communications amid Myriad Filing Systems


April 10, 2019

15:45 - 16:45

_Hub 2, Hall 2.2

Health records, patient and case files – over the last two years filing systems have become increasingly important. Health insurances are permitting customers to store their own health data and policymakers are pressing for the nationwide introduction of the patient file. In addition, over the last ten years electronic case records have been supporting the communication of case-related, quality-assured treatment data supervised by doctors.

The dialogue session on the electronic case file (EFA) will provide some orientation and highlight its important contribution to digitally supported healthcare both now and in the future. A number of lectures containing ideas from industry and politics will illustrate how the electronic patient file is already interacting with other filing systems, health insurance systems for instance. At the end of the event the audience can put their questions to panel members.

This session is organised and held by the Fraunhofer Institute for Software and Systems Engineering.
