Euro-CAS, European eHealth Interoperability Conformity Assessment Scheme, is a coordination and support action to maintain and develop the adoption and take-up of testing the interoperability of ICT solutions against eHealth standards and specifications as defined in the eHealth European Interoperability Framework (eHealth EIF). The main objective is to establish a sustainable European Conformity Assessment Scheme associated with the maintenance of the eEIF, fostering a wider eHealth interoperability uptake for the entire European market.

“Antilope follow-up”

Background information

  • Programme: Horizon 2020
  • Start: December 2016
  • Duration: 24 months
  • Budget: € 995.912,50

Main output/Impact

The main output of the project is the Conformity Assessment Scheme for Europe based on Antilope recommendations i.e. development of a flexible framework aligned with existing International eHealth Conformity Assessment and that supports extensions. This framework will be included in the Refined European Interoperability Framework (ReEIF) for implementation at the European level. Additional guidelines will provide guidance to the national/regional organisations that are developing eHealth programmes in order to maintain consistency in Europe and to promote the European single market, and for sustainability.

MedCom’s role

  • Member of the core group
  • Conformance testing and conformance scheme definition for eHealth standards
  • WP2 leader on analysing existing conformance schemes. Contribute with concrete experiences within interoperability and testing procedures.
  • MedCom will be work package leader for WP2: Scheme evaluation and contribute to the WPs that follow. WP2 will evaluate four to five interoperability schemes already deployed (2-3 international eHealth schemes, 1 EU national eHealth interoperability scheme, 1 interoperability scheme which is not within eHealth).
  • MedCom will contribute with its long standing experience regarding developing, testing, certifying, implementing and monitoring interoperability solutions in the national cross sector health care environment.
