Abstract [en]

The new Swedish Patient Act, which allows patients to choose health care in county councils other than their own, creates the need to be able to share health-related information contained in electronic health records [EHRs) across county councils. This demands interoperability in terms of structured and standardized data. Headings in EHR could also be a part of structured and standardized data. The aim was to study to what extent terminology is shared and standardized across county councils in Sweden. Headings from three county councils were analyzed to see to what extent they were shared and to what extent they corresponded to concepts in SNOMED CT and the National Board of Health and Welfare’s term dictionary [NBHW’s TD). In total 41% of the headings were shared across two or three county councils. A third of the shared headings corresponded to concepts in SNOMED CT. Further, an eighth of the shared headings corresponded to concepts in NBHW’s TD. The results showed that the extent of shared and standardized terminology in terms of headings across the studied three county councils were negligible.
