It is an agreement that gathers the eHealth experience of the associated members, leading the whole regional healthcare system to fulfil the national guidelines defined in the Digital Agenda and planned by the "Decreto Fare" that in June 2013 established deadlines for realizing the EHR at national level.
The Veneto EHR model, more like a Regional Health Information Organization, guarantees the clinical data sharing among all the LHAs and Hospital Trusts aiming at enhancing the healthcare process on a regional basis.
