Hackathon for the future of healthcare
by Louise Wahlström
A few weeks ago Aurora Innovation participated in a hackaton where the purpose was to help patients and healthcare professionals during and after a digital healthcare meeting. Attending the hackaton were the top players within e-health in Sweden.
From Aurora Innovation, Harald Carlstrand (Developer) and Anders Köhler (Technical Project Manager) participated. The theme was interoperability and the goal of the hackaton was to use the the FHIR-model to build useful integrations between different systems. FHIR is a e-health standard used to standardise how information is exchanged between different systems.
Through our digital platform for patient contact, Aurora teleQ, we can provide information that can be securely integrated with other digital healthcare tools. During this hackaton we created a proof of concept for an integration with Cosmic (an EMR system) where patient contact information was updated in the EMR through Aurora teleQ.
