eHealth Interoperability Framework - Framework v1.1

This document describes a standards-based set of concepts, structuring rules and approaches for use in specifying and building interoperable eHealth systems. It includes guidelines for:

  • structuring specifications;
  • recommending document components for an eHealth specification; and
  • defining the capability of healthcare organisations to interoperate.

The framework and specifications identified in this document are intended primarily for use in cross-organisational contexts but some of the core principles and approaches may be applicable in an individual organisation or unit. Interoperability is one of the key factors that should guide the specification, development, acquisition, implementation and use of eHealth systems.
This document is intended to be read in conjunction with the eHealth Architecture Principles.
