Five guiding principles of eHR Sharing System

  1. Electronic health record (eHR) development should be government-led and should leverage the Hospital Authority's systems and know-how.
  2. Data privacy and system security of the eHR Sharing System should be accorded paramount importance and given legal protection.
  3. Participation in eHR sharing should be compelling but not compulsory for both patients and healthcare providers.
  4. The eHR Sharing System should be based on open, pre-defined and common technical standards and operational protocols.
  5. Development of eHR Sharing System should be based on a building block approach, involving partnership with the private sector.
