EPR Projectathon 2020

Guided Tours at the EPR-Projectathon 2020

Guided tours of the EPR Projectathon will be available free of charge right through the Projectathon week. Experts from eHealth Suisse and IHE Suisse will provide an introduction to the EPR and to interoperability, will take you through the Projectathon rooms and will answer your questions. Registration can be made from the 15th August on the dedicated page.  

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.
