June 2018 Seminar: Organising Medical and Health-related Information


At this meeting held in Leeds, Ewan Davis, one of the first developers of a GP computerised health record system, discussed Electronic Health Records. This is a joint meeting with ISKO UK.


Ewan Davis was one of the first developers of a GP computerised health record system. His background is solidly in Health Informatics and more recently he has been championing two things: the use of apps on handheld devices to support medical staff, patients and carers, and the use of open (non-proprietary) standards and information exchange formats in health informatics. Indeed, he is not long back from a launch in Plymouth by the local NHS trust of an integration system based on the OpenEHR standard – see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenEHR. We also hope to have a second speaker on other aspects of EHR.

Pre Event Information

This meeting, NetIKX’s first outside London for several years, will focus on health-related information. The main speakers will be Ewan Davis, who has pioneered Electronic Health Records (EHR) and, in particular, the relationship between clinical EHR (prepared by medical professionals), Personal Health Records (PHR), which are managed by individuals themselves, and Co-produced PHR, which is a proposal for a hybrid between these two types of record.
