Open for healthcare providers

Provider organisations routinely struggle with limited monolithic procurement options, product lock-in and an endless mess of data silos.

openEHR provides an alternative in which procurement may be re‑oriented to incremental construction of an open platform that integrates existing products to the openEHR standard.

For provider institutions

openEHR offers a path to incremental procurement of platform components including CDR, terminology, registry and access control, with API‑conformant applications available from multiple suppliers. Applications may also be built in‑house using low‑code development tools.

There is no vendor lock‑in of data, which is open format and fully accessible through the openEHR APIs.
