Purpose and goal
The meeting aimed at next to the main conference Vitalis 2019 the biggest conference on health IT in the Nordic countries share experiences between the Nordic countries, United Kingdom and United States regarding interoperability and controlled knowledge management. It was also a way to follow up on the networking which took place in November 2018 next to the conference EHiN2018 in Oslo, Norway.
Expected results and effects
37 participants on site and two presenters on distance shared knowledge, discussed and formulated some central concepts who need to be developed further. The meeting resulted in a description of a knowledge management cyclical process with components and informatics details not previously described in a comprehensive way. The meeting also resulted in a comprehensive picture of the state of interoperability in sharing information within healthcare and between healthcare and patients. This was also presented at Vitalis 2019. The networking is to be continued through web meetings.
Planned approach and implementation
The Nordic countries organisations within health informatics and medical associations, interesting presenters and earlier participants were invited to the meeting.
