Border Regions

Electronic data exchange of health information between healthcare providers is essential to ensure high-quality patient care across borders. The Border Regions project (Grensstreken in Dutch), coordinated by Nictiz, promotes collaboration between healthcare organisations on both sides of the border with Germany and Belgium to make electronic data exchange a reality in cross-border patient care. The initiatives which are currently ongoing as part of the Border Regions project are described below. All experiences, knowledge and insights gained through these collaborations are shared with other healthcare organisations in the border regions to enable them to start exchanging data across borders as well.
Collaborative initiatives
