European Institute for Health Records

The European Institute for Health Records (EuroRec) Institute is an independent European not-for-profit organisation that promotes the use of high quality Electronic Health Records (EHRs). It overarches a network of national ProRec and other affiliated centres in 23 member states. EuroRec and its centres represent all relevant eHealth stakeholders (healthcare authorities, EHR system vendors and health professionals). 

EuroRec has developed a repository of validated EHR quality criteria (+1700, translated in 13 languages) and a series of tools for using these criteria in the context of quality labelling/certification, procurement and product documentation of EHRs. In December 2009, EuroRec released a first profile identifying the functionalities required of an EHR system in order to be considered as a reliable source of data for regulated clinical trials.
