Elvira - Net based patient information system
Preconditions for connecting medical journal systems at hospitals, casualty departments, GP's offices and home care services. What are the potential benefits?
The Elvira project is an investigative/pilot project where we look at the pre-conditions and needs for, and the potential benefits from, the linking of journal systems between; the hospital, emergency service, primary health service & nursing, convalescence and after care. The background of the pilot project is an expressed desire and need for access to patient data & information, across the administrative levels and institutions that comprise health service.
The project focused on a number of professional areas such as law, the security of information and organisational questions etc in order to ascertain if a net-based journal is possible. The project commenced on June 13th 2000 and finalised in January 2001 with the issuing of a final report. The final report contained recommendations for a central project that will focus on the realisation of net-based journal solutions.
