Abstract

The aim of our study was to enable better interoperability between Personal Health Record (PHR) and Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems and vice versa. A multi-layer architectural model that resides between a PHR and EHR system has been developed. The model consists of an ontology-driven information model and a set of transformation rules that work in conjunction to process data exported from a PHR or EHR system and prepare it accordingly for the receiving system. The model was evaluated by executing a set of case study scenarios containing data from both a PHR and an EHR system. This allowed various challenges to emerge and revealed gaps in current standards in use. The proposed information model offers a number of advantages. Altering only the information model can incorporate modifications to either a PHR or EHR system. The model uses classes and attributes to define how data is captured which allows greater flexibility in how data can be manipulated by receiving systems.
