This Recommendation sets out a framework for the development of a European electronic health record exchange format in order to achieve secure, interoperable, cross-border access to, and exchange of, electronic health data in the Union.
The framework includes: (a) a set of principles that should govern access to and exchange of electronic health records across borders in the
Union; (b) a set of common technical specifications for the cross-border exchange of data in certain health information domains, which should constitute the baseline for a European electronic health record exchange format; (c) a process to take forward the further elaboration of a European electronic health record exchange format.
It also encourages Member States to ensure secure access to electronic health record systems at national level.
