Enriching knowledge and enhancing care through health data

The semantic interoperability drivers behind i-HD

About the SemanticHealthNet  project

SemanticHealthNet developed a scalable and sustainable pan-European organisational and governance process for the semantic interoperability of clinical and biomedical knowledge, to help ensure that EHR systems are optimised for patient care, public health and clinical research across healthcare systems and institutions.

Through a clinically-driven workplan, exemplified in cardiovascular medicine, SemanticHealthNet captured the needs for evidence-based, patient-centred integrated care and for public health, encapsulating existing European consensus in the management of chronic heart failure and cardiovascular prevention. Experts in EHR architectures, clinical data structures, terminologies and ontology will combine, tailor and pilot their best-of-breed resources in response to the needs articulated by clinicians and public health physicians.
