Module 3. E Health Infostructure

National Electronic Health Record Maturity Model Toolkit

 The following form part of the infostructure:

  • clinical information repositories
  •  directory records identifying patients
  •  products and places,
  • the use of clinical terminology
  • components related to monitoring informed consent for patients
  •  the implementation of mechanisms to preserve privacy
  • security of access to the platform
  • rules for sharing the different kinds of electronic clinical documents.

In the framework of this chapter, five relevant components are identified:

  1. D3.C1.: Repositories and systems for an EHR
  2. D3.C2.: Identification
  3. D3.C3.: Interoperability
  4. D3.C4.: Consent, control and handling workflows
