Electronic Health Record Communication (EN 13606) European Standard developed by CEN TC251 to define a rigorous and stable information architecture for communicating part or all of the Electronic Health Record ( EHR) of a single subject of care (patient). This is to support the interoperability of systems and components that need to communicate (access, transfer, add or modify) EHR data via electronic messages or as distributed objects:
- preserving the original clinical meaning intended by the author;
- reflecting the confidentiality of that data as intended by the author and patient. .
