eHealth standardisation in the Nordic countries

Technical and Partially Semantics Standardisation as a Strategic Means for Realising National Policies in eHealth

This report summarises the discussions from a seminar held 30 and 31 August 2018 in Copenhagen on eHealth standardisation in the Nordic countries. The seminar was organised by the Nordic Council of Ministers’ eHealth group. The report represents the beginning of a more permanent Nordic collaboration in this area. Following the seminar and the subsequent analysis of the input from the seminar, the eHealth group has decided to establish a subgroup on eHealth standardisation.The scope of the report is limited mainly to technical standards, with some examples including semantic standards. The work of the sub group will take on both the former and the latter and will be elaborated further within the broader framework of the European Interoperability Framework in which organisational and legal standards are included.
