eHRSS Commences Operation

 
Training on eHR and Onsite Registration Campaign at HA/DH Clinics

The Electronic Health Record Sharing System (eHRSS) was launched in March 2016 and registration is now open to members of the public. A series of promotion activities have been rolled out to encourage participation to the system.

 
eHRSS Goes Live
 
The eHRSS has commenced operation and the public is welcome to register to the eHRSS. Registration is voluntary and free-of-charge.
 
Officiating at the launching ceremony on 7 March 2016, the Secretary for Food and Health, Dr Ko Wing-man, said through developing a territory-wide patient-oriented system operated with patients’ consent, the eHRSS will greatly facilitate continuity of care, and allow better integration of different healthcare services to bring about benefits for individual patients.
 
“The participation of the private sector and support of patients are equally important to the successful implementation of two-way sharing of electronic health records between public and private healthcare providers,” he said.
 
Other officiating guests at the ceremony included Dr Anthony Lee, the Chairman of Hong Kong Private Hospitals Association; Mr Richard Yuen, the then Permanent Secretary for Food and Health (Health); Professor Sophia Chan, the Under Secretary for Food and Health; Mr Sidney Chan, the Commissioner for the Electronic Health Record; Dr Constance Chan, the Director of Health; Dr Leung Pak-yin, the Chief Executive of Hospital Authority; Dr Donald Li, the President of Hong Kong Academy of Medicine; Dr Louis Shih, the then President of Hong Kong Medical Association; and representatives of local private hospitals.
