What is OpenEHR?

OpenEHR is a virtual community working on means of turning health data from the physical form into electronic form and ensuring universal interoperability among all forms of electronic data. The primary focus is on electronic health records (EHR).

People who work with tech and health gather in Tromsø, under the Northern Lights, on January 18 and 19. Here, they share their best ideas, to bring the health services of the world forward for the benefit of both clinicians and patients.
