Expanding Digital Health through a pan-European EHRxF-based Ecosystem

Project description

EU-wide digital health solutions

The European electronic health record exchange format (EEHRxF) allows citizens to quickly access and share their health data with healthcare professionals within the EU. The EU-funded XpanDH project will build capacity in individuals and organisations with the aim of creating, adapting and exploring the use of interoperable digital health solutions through a shared adoption of the EEHRxF across the EU. The project will develop robust technical specifications and resources for the EEHRxF building; establish the X-Bundle Readiness model and verify its usefulness in the real world; mature a pan-European digital health ecosystem for solution providers and end users; and develop a framework for a sustainable health ecosystem.

Objective

XpanDH is a CSA aimed at mobilizing and building capacity in individuals and organisations to create, adapt and explore purposeful use of interoperable digital health solutions based on a shared adoption of the European Electronic Health Records Exchange format (EEHRxF) across Europe. This pan-European effort will use a “network-of-networks” approach ensuring that digital health actors are motivated and supported by tailored guidance and real examples to help early adopters to advance to the concrete use of EEHRxF-embedded digital health solutions to add value to health and care and promote Personal and European Health Data Spaces.

XpanDH pursues the main goal of maturing and accelerating a sustainable and scalable interoperability environment for digital health innovations based on the EEHRxF, around 5 Goals: 1) To develop robust technical specifications and resources for the EEHRxF building; 2) To establish the X-Bundle Readiness model; 3) To verify the usefulness of the X-Bundle in real-world with a set of early adopters grouped under selected adoption domains; 4) To mature a pan-European digital health ecosystem of solution providers and end-users, 5) To develop a framework for sustainable ecosystem.

The consortium will thrive on past and ongoing eHealth interoperability projects and services, and particularly on the X-eHealth and DigitalHealthEurope projects recommendations, through digital health data activism and strong patient engagement.

It brings together 26 Digital Health Actors under a co-creation and co-implementation concept, supported by a Policy Board (linking to Governments and the eHealth Network). To expand its impact, 10 XpandDH networks of hundreds of health stakeholders will be nurtured to form a vibrant pan-European (Digital) Health space converging on common, usable, and reliable tools for real interoperable services that adoption of the EEHRxF and enhance healthcare cooperation for better health towards a European Health Union.
