COCIR Tookit

The COCIR 2014 eHealth Toolkit provides a comprehensive set of industry recommendations to progress towards data-driven:

  • Leveraging Big Data and analytics in healthcare
  • Deploying Vendor Neutral Archiving systems for better care coordination
  • Advancing personalised medicine with eHealth tools
  • Balancing legal and regulatory obligations (including data protection legislation)


It also provides an updated glossary of terms.

The first edition of the Toolkit in 2011 set the scene by defining eHealth and developing ten recommendations for a better and faster deployment of eHealth. The following edition issued in 2012 covered important aspects of eHealth such as interoperability, cloud computing and eHealth market development and barriers. The 2013 edition addressed digital hospitals, mobile health, and legal and regulatory trends pertained to medical software and data protection.
