Fujitsu and Sapporo Medical University have announced the launch of a project starting in April 2023 to realise data portability for patients’ healthcare data including electronic health records (EHRs) and personal health records (PHRs).
As part of the project, Fujitsu will develop a mobile app that enables users to view healthcare data on their iPhones and a cloud-based healthcare data platform to manage patients’ health data. This project marks the first initiative in Japan to link electronic medical records with Apple’s Health app under Apple’s support.
EHR data stored on the newly developed external healthcare data platform will be converted to a format in accordance with JP Core (FHIR JP Core Implementation Guide Version 1.1.1) – the latest Japanese guideline under the next-generation standards framework HL7 FHIR for health information exchange.
By empowering patients to access their medical data from anywhere at any time and play a more active role in managing their own health, the project aims to contribute to the provision of optimal medical care and services tailored to the health conditions of individual patients while simultaneously improving patient engagement.Click below to share this article
