First findings of the EHR IMPACT study will be presented next month.

First findings of the EHR IMPACT study will be presented next month at the European Union Ministerial Conference on eHealth 2008 in Portorož, Slovenia. The case study of the computerised patient record system at the University Hospitals in Geneva, Switzerland will be used as an example to illustrate the benefits, as well as lessons learnt for future investments in interoperable EHR and ePrescribing systems. The session will be shared with the Financing eHealth study, which focuses on the investment aspects of eHealth.
