2018 was a year of significant advances in the Trillium II project, in which the Fundació TIC Salut Social participates in collaboration with several European community partners.
Trillium II is based on the results achieved in previous European projects such as epSOS and Trillium Bridge and looks towards the implementation of patient summaries at the international level using international standards such as HL7, FHIR and SNOMED CT.
The most notable achievements were:
- The delivery of 12 deliverables. Some of which can be found at the following link: https://trillium2.eu/deliverables/
- Participation in a Datathon in Göteborg last April.
- The launch of the Trillium II Prize, which will be awarded to the organisation that has done the most to promote the beneficial use of the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources International Patient Summary (FHIR IPS) for international medical information exchanges.
- The publication and maintenance of the specifications of the Trillium II IPS.
- Cooperation with the IPS project and participation in drafting the European standard 17269, ‘The Patient Summary for Unplanned, Cross-border Care’.
- Participation in the MODEX exercise which took place in October in Romania to test and establish the value of IPS in a disaster situation.
- Establishing a use case for children’s welfare as a beneficiary of the creation and use of IPS in collaboration with the MOCHA
- The definition of the principal areas of educational content which are needed to maximize clinical support, the patient and the use of IPS.
- The Application of IPS governance practices throughout the Atlantic.
- The promotion of various innovation initiatives involving IPS.
- The successful completion of work package 2 with the final presentation of the implementation guide.
- The setting of business objectives which are appropriate for the future reuse and acceptance of Trillium II specifications by the various interested parties.
- A significant increase in our online presence.
In 2019, the project, which is expected to end in June, will continue to progress. During the first semester, work will be done to deliver 6 new deliverables and some of the main activities will involve continuing to carry out demonstrations of the usability of the IPS in various events, such as the one which will be held at the Connectathon in Rennes (France).
