Biomedical Informatics Group (IBIME) - ITACA Institute - Universidad Politécnica de Valencia
The Biomedical Informatics Group (IBIME) is an interdisciplinary research group committed to biomedical computer science since its creation in 1999. The group focuses on real problems in the field of biomedical computer science that are raised by health professionals, health institutions and health administrations. IBIME has participated in many regional, national and European-funded projects and has a lengthy experience in the design, preparation and management of Computer Science Systems for Medicine.
IBIME is part of the Institute for Applications of Advanced Information and Communication Technologies (ITACA Institute) located at the Technical University of Valencia (UPV), Spain.
Electronic Record Services (ERS)
Electronic Record Services B.V. (ERS) is a Limited under Dutch law established in 2007 and located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. ERS markets worldwide an Integrated Care Electronic Health Record Infrastructure (IC-EHR) that is supportive to Clinical Research due to Electronic Data Capture capabilities. The IC-EHR is a logical EHR according to the ISO definition and conformant with the ISO EN13606 and supports multiple Reference Models, based on the Two Level Modeling principle, as defined in the EN13606 EHR standard. ERS Directors participated in several European projects related to semantic interoperability in healthcare and quality assurance related to the EHR. One of ERS directors is former chair of CEN Tc251 working group 1 responsible for the EN13606. ERS core capabilities are the design and marketing of EHR products and configuration tooling delivered to customers through local partners, QA controlled artefact production and designing business concepts for EHR adaptation.
Laboratory for Medical Information Systems (Medis) - HelmholtzZentrum München
In the institute we work to achieve these comprehensive goals by developing and testing suitable methods and technology and by making them available for practical use. The methods of medical communication and information, for example electronic medical records and telemedicine serve to improve the communication of patient related data and make medical knowledge available at the health professional’s workplace. They provide support in the care for chronically ill people. An important aspect of our research is the utilisation of data gained from clinical documentation for knowledge-based decision support. Documentation-, consultation- and knowledge-based systems are tested and evaluated in the context of research at the medical workplace. The effectiveness of both practical medical care for patients in hospitals as well as the indirect guidance of medical facilities shall thus be supported.
Marcelo Rodrigues dos Santos
EHR consultant of the Health Department of the State of Minas Gerais, participating on the development of the central EHR repository for the State, and PhD student of the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG - www.ufmg.br). His research area is about semantic interoperability and the use of CEN/ISO EN13606 extract model to allow several different EHR systems to exchange patient summaries to a central EHR repository.
