What is EHRbase?

From a technical perspective, EHRbase is an open source software backend for clinical application systems and electronic health records. It is mainly based on the openEHR specifications, an open platform architecture for developing flexible and interoperable eHealth systems. Applications based on openEHR share a common information architecture, i.e. they „speak“ the same technical language to express clinical information. This enables interoperability between applications by design.

EHRbase is also a community that aims to bring down barriers for vendors, hospitals, regional and national eHealth programs, researchers and others to adapt open standards and thereby foster the establishment of semantic interoperability. As an alternative to proprietary platform products or self-development, EHRbase strives to give organizations a modern, standard-compliant and bedrock-solid foundation for their mission critical business operations and their next generation eHealth solutions.
