EPR Projectathon 2020

Registration to the Projectathon 2020

The fourth EPR Projectathon will take place from 21st to 25th Septembre 2020. Interested firms are invited to register for the Test Event from 1st to 30th June 2020! A webinar on 2nd June 2020 will assist organisations with the registration process.

If the evolution of the current outbreak allows for physical attendance, the Projectathon will be held as the previous year at the Event Forum in Bern. If however, large events should be prohibited, the organisation team is preparing measures to ensure the possibility of a fully online Projectathon.

This year, mHealth profiles based on FHIR and some of the exchange formats specified for e-medication can be tested in FHIR, such as the "Medication Card document". This list indicates the profiles that can be tested during Projectathon. As new profiles are still under construction, availability will be communicated in advance in the Google Group.

The EPR Projectathon in September 2020: with IHE on FHIR

The fourth EPR Projectathon will take place at the Eventforum in Bern from 21 to 25 September 2020. This year, FHIR-based IHE profiles will also be able to be tested, including the profiles Mobile Access to Health Documents (MHD), Patient Identifier Cross-Reference for Mobile (PIXm), Internet User Authorization (IUA) and Patient Master Identity Registry (PMIR). Furthermore, it will be possible to test all eMedication exchange formats in the FHIR version at the 2020 EPR Projectathon. If testing is successful, these formats will then be incorporated into the legal framework of the EPR. In addition to providers of eHealth solutions for EPR communities, this event is mainly aimed at the developers of primary systems such as clinical or practice information systems (CIS, PIS). The exact testing program for the 2020 Projectathon will be announced at the beginning of May; registration will open on 1 June.
