Empowering European Healthcare: Insights from the XpanDH Project Webinar

  • by

On May 7th, stakeholders from across Europe convened for the third webinar of the XpanDH Project X-Net 10, marking another significant stride towards advancing healthcare interoperability and innovation within the EU. Hosted by Alberto Zanini and Chiara Bellanca from ARIA S.p.A. Lombardia, the webinar provided a dynamic platform for fruitful discussions and the exploration of new frontiers in health data interoperability.

Exploring New Frontiers in Health Data Interoperability

The webinar kicked off with a vibrant exchange of ideas, where participants delved into potential domains where interoperability could be further promoted. This collaborative brainstorming session underscored the importance of seamless data exchange in enhancing patient care, optimizing healthcare delivery, and fostering innovation across borders.

Showcasing Project Initiatives

Central to the webinar were the presentations of several key initiatives from the XpanDH Project:

  • Survey on Laboratory Reports Exchange: One notable initiative highlighted was a survey aimed at assessing current practices in producing and exchanging Laboratory Reports across Europe. This survey, open to National and Regional health authorities, healthcare providers, IT professionals (including EHR implementers and vendors), seeks to gather insights that will inform strategies for improving interoperability in this critical area. Stakeholders are encouraged to contribute their expertise via this survey link.
  • Community of Doers and Co-creators: Another exciting initiative introduced during the webinar was the Community of Doers and Co-creators. This community serves as a collaborative platform for stakeholders interested in exploring future applications and innovations related to the European Electronic Health Record eXchange Format (EEHRxF). Stakeholders passionate about shaping the future of healthcare interoperability are invited to join this initiative and contribute their insights.

Future Directions and Collaboration

Looking ahead, the XpanDH Project remains committed to engaging with stakeholders at both national and regional levels across the EU. By fostering ongoing dialogue and collaboration, XpanDH aims to co-design strategies that accelerate the adoption of EEHRxF and drive forward the interoperability agenda in European healthcare.
