Project investigate how electronic medical records can be used to

e-MD elektronisch medisch dossier (Dutch) = eMR: electronic medical record
Prototype platform

We developed a prototype that grants patients access to their EHRs, based on the findings of an unmet need and driver-barriers analysis, and a series of qualitative and quantitative interviews, surveys and advisory boards with patients and GPs.  It was presented to representatives of the Belgian Health Ministry, in the frame of “Actieplan 10”.

 EHR: electronic health record
GP: general practitioner
