Radboud university medical center has selected Forcare to provide their IHE-XDS platform, following a tender procedure and successfully completed pilot deployment. Radboud will use the Forcare platform to build the health information exchange infrastructure for safe and secure exchange of patient information with regional and national care providers. Radboud is a leading university medical center in the Netherlands in the use of IT for healthcare innovation, evidenced by their partnerships with Epic, Philips, Apple and Google, and the first Dutch hospital to achieve HIMSS Stage 7.
On April 11 till 15, Forcare had a strong presence on the 10th European Connectathon 2016 in Bochum, Germany.
Among 80+ other vendors, and between 300+ engineers, we tested foundational profiles such as XDS. In addition, we also brought new and updated mobile interfaces, based on the latest version of HL7 FHIR and the mobile profiles from IHE. The specifications for implementing a trial use of these profiles were released just a few weeks prior.
Protecting personal health information from unauthorized access is a major concern to many people today. As patients we expect that our privacy sensitive data is kept safely by those that are responsible for our care. We expect that only those who need access to our medical records have, while those that we do not have a “treatment relationship” with don’t.
Every day at 10am and 2pm you can enjoy a 15 minute crash course on IHE XDS at the Forcare booth at HIMSS (#2671) in Las Vegas. In this course we'll explain the basics of the IHE Cross-enterprise Document Sharing profile and how to benefit from it in your daily clinical activities.
