In a couple of hours I’m heading to the airoport for a great adventure – almost three weeks in China culminating with the MedInfo conference in Hangzhou. My first mission at the conference will be to hold a workshop together with reserachers from Norway on Wednesday the 23rd of August.
The topic is of course related to my current research project PACESS and the DOME research consortium, but is focusing on approaches and methods to evaluate the implementation and use of patient accessible electronic health records (PAEHR).
The aim of this workshop is twofold;
To disseminate knowledge by presenting experiences from ongoing projects regarding development and deployment of e-health systems for citizens to access their patient information / health record (and similar e-health services) online.
To explore important factors to assess in evaluations of PAEHR, and discuss methods for capturing this information to ensure comparable results from international PAEHR projects.
The scientific objective of the workshop is to propose a first international framework for evaluating PAEHR based on experiences from current implementation and evaluation projects, as well as the expertise of the workshop participants and the discussions during the workshop.
Hopefully, we will be able to write a report or paper based on the results of the workshop, so stay tuned for more! Or join us if you happen to be in Hangzhou!
