Towards an Integrated Health Information System in the Netherlands
Twenty-first century health systems have to be built around data and information.
An integrated health information system enables the secure flow of data to where they
can be used, to provide information to strengthen integrated care delivery, enable
public health monitoring and management, and foster medical and health research and
innovation. This report describes the requirements and the benefits of an integrated
health information system; outlines the current situation in the Netherlands in the
context of progress across OECD countries; and recommends legal, policy and operational
changes to overcome barriers to the efficient exchange and sharing of health data
and to establish an integrated health information system.
