eHRSS Updates

The Electronic Health Record Office (eHR Office) has organised briefings, engagement meetings and other promotional activities to provide key stakeholders with updates on the Electronic Health Record Sharing System (eHRSS) and to encourage further participation in the system.

Recruitment andv Publicity
Registration Campaigns for the Elderly
The 6-month on-site installation and registration campaign for elderly homes was completed in end-2016. Through the campaign, 100 elderly homes and centres have registered with eHRSS, and about 8,000 elderly residents and members of the public joined the system.
In collaboration with the Senior Citizen Home Safety Association, special assistance is being provided to clients of the association who participated in the Public-Private Interface–Electronic Patient Record Sharing Pilot Project (PPI-ePR) to join the system.
On-site Registration Campaign
The mobile registration campaign that commenced shortly after the launch of eHRSS was completed in January 2017. Over the 10-month period, more than 100,000 members of the public have registered with eHRSS through mobile teams deployed to hospitals and clinics of the Hospital Authority (HA) and the Department of Health (DH).
In view of the enthusiastic response, a new round of on-site registration campaign has commenced in February 2017. In addition to clinics of HA and DH, registration teams under this round of campaign are also visiting selected district elderly community centres and maternal and child health centres to facilitate registration of elderly and newborns.
Community Roving Exhibition on eHRSS and eHR Internship Programme

The Electronic Health Record (eHR) Internship Programme is a three-year project launched in 2014 that aims to build up health informatics capacity and promote eHR development in Hong Kong. As the programme approaches the final year, a community roving exhibition to showcase the achievements of the programme and to promote eHRSS was held between 4 November and 10 December 2016 at seven venues across the territory, namely Cyberport, Tin Chak Shopping Centre, Tai Po Mega Mall, Kwun Tong MTR Station, Olympian City, InnoCentre and Youth Square. Registration booths were also set up at some of the venues for the public to register with eHRSS on site.
