eHRSS Updates

The Electronic Health Record Office (eHR Office) continued to organise and participate in activities to promote the Electronic Health Record Sharing System (eHRSS) and to engage stakeholders.

Hong Kong Pharmacy Conference 2018

The conference was held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on 10-11 March 2018. Themed “30th Pearl Anniversary: Pharma-Collaboration for New Frontiers”, the conference was co-hosted by 7 organisations comprising professional bodies, academic institutions and public organisations to foster collaboration and service innovation among pharmacists and other healthcare professionals to improve continuity of care and health outcomes for patients.

Ms Ida Lee, former Commissioner for the Electronic Health Record (eHRC), was invited as the guest speaker at the session titled “eHRSS for the Pharmacy Profession” under the Partnership stream of the Conference. Participants were introduced to eHRSS and given details on how the pharmacy profession can take part in and benefit from eHR sharing. Ms Lee also elaborated on what potential opportunities eHRSS’ coming development would present to the profession. The session was attended by close to 200 participants.
