Since 1998 the Observatory has collected data on various aspects of EHR technology, modelling and dissemination (www.epj-observatoriet.dk) Activities in the observatory consist of analyses and documentation of

  • Implementation and dissemination issues; i.e. diffusion and diffusion rate of EHR-systems, experience among the different stakeholders, factors that increase diffusion and use of EHR-systems.
  • Issues related to common information model for EHR-systems; i.e. uncover differences and compatibilities between regional data models, communicate consequences of using incompatible data models, and specify the demand for a common frame of reference.The Observatory organises an annual conference with national and international speakers. Every year, around 500 people attends the conference. Also, the annual EHR report is published at the conference.MEDIQ is one of the two partners in the Danish EHR Observatory.
