openEHR NHS Wales: A Technical Overview - 23 February 2021

Events | Jan. 7, 2021, 11:46 a.m.

This second event on openEHR provides an opportunity for attendees to learn about openEHR technology and broaden their understanding, focussing on the technical aspects of its architecture.

Over the past few years, openEHR based solutions within a multivendor environment have proven to be a successful approach to managing electronic healthcare records at any scale. The technology is based upon an open and agile architecture, supporting modern, digital solutions with validated clinical models. These are stored in a vendor neutral repository and underpin the principles of universal interoperability within an open platform ecosystem.
