Development of e-Health Platform and Applications

For Patient-centered Healthcare Services


Supported by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey

1511 – Research Technology Development and Innovation Projects in Priority Areas G. P.


One of the major aim of the e-HMSPU Project is development of a high-performance, e-health platform designed to store, manage, query, retrieve and exchange structured electronic health record data based on the latest healthcare information standards.  The platform enables healthcare data computing, semantic interoperability, vendor-neutral, life-long and future-proof storage of electronic healthcare data. On the platform, three application prototypes will be developed for patients and families, home care services providers and population health management authorities:

  1. Personal Health Record System
  2. Home Care Information Management System
  3. Diabetes Registry System

To support continuity of care and improve patient safety, continua certified remote monitoring systems will be integrated to these applications. The applications will also be including clinical decision support tools for implementing evidence-based clinical guidelines and safe medication management requirements.

The project started in June 2014 and will be completed at May 2016.
