The Electronic Health Record Sharing System (eHRSS) has a growing presence in the global information and communication technology (ICT) sector. It has recently won another international award and was presented to global health leaders in an international digital health summit.

 
The World Information Technology and Services Alliance (WITSA) Global ICT Excellence Awards 2018
eHRSS has once again acquired international recognition in the global ICT sector, winning the Innovative eHealth Solutions Award of the WITSA Global ICT Excellence Awards 2018 for its outstanding achievement in adopting ICT to promote healthcare for the benefits of the community, the government and the private sector.
 
Ms Ida Lee, former Commissioner for the Electronic Health Record and Mr Hudson Chan, Senior Systems Manager (Electronic Health Systems Development) of the Hospital Authority (HA), received the award in Hyderabad, India, on 19 February 2018.
 

Speaking at a press conference announcing the award winners, Ms Lee said eHRSS was a key component of Hong Kong’s healthcare system, providing the necessary information technology infrastructure for facilitating two-way sharing of patient’s health records among public and private healthcare providers in Hong Kong.

“Other than the technical side, eHRSS has been developed with a human touch. Since the very beginning, we have worked closely with our stakeholders and considered their clinical and workflow needs with a view to developing a practical, user-friendly and sustainable system. We are glad that with the concerted efforts from patients, healthcare professionals and ICT practitioners, eHRSS has once again acquired international recognition,” remarked Ms Lee.

The Global Digital Health Partnership (GDHP) Summit and International Digital Health Symposium

The international event was held in Canberra and Sydney, Australia, from 19 to 23 February 2018. GDHP is an international collaboration between governments, public agencies and multinational organisations to support the effective implementation of digital health services.

This year, Hong Kong was invited to join health leaders from 13 countries and the World Health Organization at the GDHP inaugural summit. Dr NT Cheung, Head of Information Technology and Health Informatics of HA, gave a presentation to participants of the summit on the development path and vision of eHealth in Hong Kong’s public sector, in which eHRSS has played a significant part. The achievements, challenges, key success factors and further potential of eHealth development in Hong Kong were also shared.

Following the summit, representatives of the Electronic Health Record Office and HA joined the symposium and visited several renowned health services bodies and academic institutions. Fruitful discussions and exchanges were held with delegates from other countries on how to make best use of digital technology, including electronic health record sharing, to deliver digital health services to support clinical quality and safety, as well as how healthcare policy issues and challenges were tackled by other governments. The event had provided invaluable insights for the further development of eHRSS in Hong Kong.
