The GEHR Model

The Good European Health Record has been put together by ~ 250 clinicians in Europe who have analyzed how clinical records are to be stored, transferred, entered, altered and recognized.

“Advantages of GEHR over current electronic and paper-based systems include the following:

  • Improves the quality of clinical care, while significantly reducing IT costs of providers
  • Integrates contributions by all clinicians, including GPs, specialists, hospital staff, allied health workers, pathology and radiology services, as well as patients themselves
  • Provides a complete picture of a patient’s health status enabling better care to be delivered
  • Dramatically reduces the level of data errors compared with paper records and current EHR systems
  • Allows patients complete control over access and distribution of their health records
  • Enables health records to be safely and securely communicated between healthcare organizations such as hospitals, GP clinics and community health providers
  • Is closely linked to international health informatics standards
  • Ensures that electronic health records are “future proof”, interoperable, and automatically processable through the use of a revolutionary new approach called “archetypes”
  • Ensures that electronic health record system software and databases no longer have to be continually changed to incorporate new requirements
  • Allows version-controlled health records, enabling all past states of the health record to be investigated in the event of clinical or medico-legal investigations

GEHR is an international “World Best Practice” standard. Medico-legally this means that as a provider, you can be reassured that Profile has been designed and is written from a full evaluation of “World Best Practice” standards.
