KIH XDS Repository
The KIH XDS Repository (KIH) is a part the national infrastructure for data sharing. Its purpose is to share and give an overview of relevant data in a course of treatment across actors in the health care system in an effective and secure way.
The national infrastructure is based on the IHE XDS standard with a shared national registry containing information on and pointers to clinical data on patients in different repositories.
KIH is one of these repositories – and contribute, in the national infrastructure, to collection and sharing home monitoring data and patient reported questionnaire data.
The background for the establishment of KIH is, that many home monitoring and patient reported outcomes (PRO) systems are standalone solutions with their own databases and often also their own portals for displaying data.
KIH facilitates a standardized access to sharing this information via the Document-sharing-service on the National Service Platform with the purpose to show them in local systems (e.g. GP systems and EHRs) no matter the data structure of the system source.
