...and making sure they match!"


"Joined up medical computing will only be practical when standardised sets of medical data can be passed automatically from one specialised system e.g. Haematology or Primary Care, to another specialised system e.g. Maternity or Theatre"

British Standard BS 10008:2008
Evidential weight and legal admissibility of electronic information. Specification
Published : November 2008 Link to Abstract

This is the British Standard that specifies the requirements for the implementation and operation of electronic information management systems, and to the electronic transfer of information from one computer system to another, addressing issues relating to the authenticity and integrity of the electronic information. These issues are important where the electronic information could be used as evidence.


"HL7 delivers interoperability standards"

 American Progress 





A single electronic record for every medical need of each individual patient is not practical.




a) Following an open internet based debate, there will need to be a national (and eventually international) agreement on a detailed, chronologically arranged set of flow-patterned questions (and all allowable answer options) in each sub-speciality - as proposed for maternity and neonatal care in the EEPD Volume 5. Logical Priority. Phase 1.


b) There will then need to be an international agreement on standard sets of electronic data items which need to be transmitted in “real time” (i.e. instantly) from one computer system e.g. a laboratory or a scanning system to another e.g. a maternity system. An approach known in business as Electronic Data Interchange (E.D.I.)


The writer does not yet know of an easily remembered name for such electronically transferrable datasets, and therefore proposes the use of the acronym S.IN.B.A.Ds (Standard INter-program of Bundles of Associated Data) 



This volume of the EEPD aims to stimulate an internet based facility for drafting the content of the many perinatal S.IN.B.A.D.s which will eventually be needed.
