IPS Global Community of Practice for Digital Health Innovation

22 July 2019

ECHAlliance, as partner of Trillium II, is glad to announce that the project will complement an IPS global Community of Practice for digital health innovation to continue sharing, exploring, and developing the Ideas behind the International Patient Summary.

As Catherine Chronaki, Secretary General HL7 Foundation and Scientific Coordinator of the Trillium II project, said “In the last two years, we worked with many organizations and consortia to understand how patient summaries can improve the health and care of people by providing a minimum but essential core set of health information, their allergies, medication, problem list. Cooperation agreements were signed with the European Society of Hypertension (ESH), the FrailSafe project, the C3Cloud project, the MOCHA project, European Mobile Field Hospital Project, each addressing a different use of patient summaries. We also worked closely with the eHealth Digital Services Infrastructure (eHDSI) on European cross-border service for ePrescription and Patient Summaries, with more to come.”

The structural characteristics of a community of practice are again redefined to a domain of knowledge, a notion of a community, and a practice. For the IPS CoP, the domain of knowledge that creates common ground and inspires members to participate guiding their learning is the implementation of the IPS in different settings answering different needs. The community that creates the social fabric of mutual learning is what fosters interactions and encourages the sharing of ideas. The IPS practice covers different facets of mutual learning in different testing events where we elaborate implementation of new ideas, such as hackthons and datathons, where we explore new data sets. In the end the IPS community of practice is our reference site for our shared knowledge, the meeting place of the IPS community.
