What’s Driving Adoption of EHR Solutions in Europe?

“Recommendations on European EHR Exchange Format and X-eHealth Project”

The European Commission adopted a recommendation on the EHR exchange format to facilitate cross-border interoperability across the EU. This is likely to ensure that citizens securely access and exchange their health data wherever they are in the European Union, and can share their health data with healthcare professionals as and when the need arises. This process is likely to engage relevant stakeholders such as national competence centres, healthcare professional organizations, national authorities, patient groups, etc.

In addition, the idea of the X-eHealth project to develop a basis for a workable, interoperable, and cross-border exchange format is anticipated to advance the e-health sector in Europe. A common framework for laboratory results and medical imaging for flow across health entities between neighboring countries and EU member states will be in place.

“High Need to Streamline & Centralize Workflow in Healthcare Sector”

Rising demand for streamlining and centralizing healthcare administration is anticipated to propel the demand for electronic health records over the coming years. A value-based model aims toward standardizing processes, streamlining operations, reducing costs, and improving patient care via the centralization of health information management.

Product approvals, product launches, expansion activities, acquisitions, partnerships, etc., are likely to significantly impact the demand for electronic health records owing to rising digitalization, thereby fueling market growth.

What Might Hinder EHR Solution Usage in Europe to Some Extent?

“High Cost in Implementing and Maintaining EHRs”

Despite several factors supporting the growth of the European electronic health records (EHR) market across end-use applications, certain factors restrict the adoption of EHRs. For instance, one of the most prominent factors is the high cost associated with implementing and maintaining EHRs.
