the healthcare environment is changing
the healthcare environment is changing
  • Population mobility and continuity of care
  • Care to the point of need (incl. Home Care)
  • Distant monitoring of health status
  • Intermittent hospital
  • Personal health management enabled by wellness pathways
  • Evidence-based medicine
  • Increasing role of genomic data and bioinformatics
  • Emphasis on the creation and consistent use of a life-long (active) I-EHR

Technology is taking on a leading role

information and knowledge transfer
Best practice, as determined by experts on the basis of outcomes, requires integrating individual clinical expertise with the best available external evidence from extensive clinical trials.

However, finding, interpreting and applying the results of the thousands of clinical trials reported in published research literature, is a major problem.1

The result is an inefficient transfer of evidence from the research world to the clinic.

“there is an enormous ‘voltage drop’ from what is known in medical science to what the average patient receives for medical care.”2

priorities for the 21 st century
priorities for the 21st century

Today, dominant trends in healthcare include the movement towards shared or integrated care, in which the single doctor-patient relationship is giving way to one in which an individual’s healthcare is the responsibility of a team of professionals across all levels of the healthcare system.

These trends necessitate the development of:

  • Regional Health Information Networks (RHINs)
  • Life-long (active) integrated electronic health record (I-EHR)
  • Synchronous and Asynchronous Collaboration Services
  • Novel eHealth Services

region of crete
Region of Crete
  • Population of ~600,000
  • Large number of isolated communities in remote locations
  • Population more than doubles during the summer period
  • Accidents more than triple during the summer period
  • 42% of accidents involve tourists
  • The Healthcare System of Crete includes all levels of the hierarchy
  • The Venizelion General Hospital and EKAB-Crete offer medical services to other islands in the South Aegean

A model for the design

and implementation

hii health information infrastructure
An infrastructure that provides shared resources for health care agents and patients enabling information to flow in an appropriately structured, identifiable (unambiguous) and secure fashion.

The Principles…

Implementation based on a modular and scalable architecture

component-based SW

promotion of interoperability

use of open standards

evolution from the current infrastructure, while adding new capabilities

provision of high quality services

achieving critical mass
achieving critical mass
  • Diffusion of innovation is a gradual and often difficult process, and requires effective management of change
  • The rate of adoption of innovative solutions is influenced by many social, cultural, economic, organizational, and political factors
  • Education, training, and continuous technical support is a key success factor

All available evidence indicates that a critical mass has been achieved on Crete

benefits
benefits
  • benefits are to be assessed regularly until steady-state is achieved
  • in HYGEIAnet, measurable benefits have been observed regarding
    • the cost to benefit ratio
    • access to care
    • quality of care
    • creation of a critical mass and momentum
