Siemens Healthcare Enables the Exchange of Health Data with ELGA
Denise Schäfer | 25.04.2016
The electronic health record (ELGA) was launched on December 9, 2015. Hospitals of the Styrian Hospital Corporation (KAGes) and of the Vienna Hospital Association (KAV) in Austria are the first to introduce the system. Together with affiliate ITH icoserve, Siemens Healthcare is providing both institutions with the necessary infrastructure. Communication between the networks via ELGA is based on federated XDS Affinity Domains. Both hospital associations will use the sense1 eHealth solution, and it will lay the foundation for the common, nation-wide electronic health record. The ELGA regions of Styria and Vienna are based on a technology directly from or distributed by Siemens Healthcare that enables the secure, standardized exchange of sensitive patient data. Top priority is given to data security, usability, and long-term reliability.
