What we offer

The HIP CDR provides you with the following features

Open data standards enable vendor independence

The HIP CDR uses the open and internationally recognised FHIR and openEHR standards to store and deliver structured data. This gives you full control over your data at all times. The open and standardised interfaces give you read and write access to all data at all times. An S3 binary data store is available for storing multimedia data.

In addition to using open standards, the HIP CDR goes one step further: health data is stored exclusively in open source licensed system components. In this way, the HIP CDR guarantees true vendor independence – for a long-term, future-proof investment in your digitalisation strategy. Ideal for a fast start to your projects: the HIP CDR offers flexible and secure storage options for binary data and guarantees full traceability of data origin.

Efficient integration into your enterprise environment

System integration is a major challenge in healthcare, not least because of new legal requirements for interoperability. With CDR Bridge, you can define HL7v2 and FHIR interfaces in a flexible and extensible way – for perfect integration into your business processes. The library of interface definitions is constantly being expanded and can be customised by your IT team as required.

The HIP CDR comes with pre-configured identity and access control based on Keycloak and integrates with your existing user authentication via openID Connect, LDAP, Active Directory, SAML and others. Single sign-on and 2-factor authentication can also be realised.

Secure and GDPR compliant

The integrated attribute-based access control (ABAC) allows fine-grained control of access rights down to the data level via our administration interface. Thanks to this, HIP CDR fulfils the requirements for implementation within hospitals as well as for the implementation of case files between healthcare providers.

All access to data is automatically recorded on the basis of the Audit Trail and Node Authentication (ATNA) specification and can be retrieved by auditors. Regular security testing ensures that HIP CDR provides the best possible protection for your data.

Your requirements efficiently realised

The HIP CDR is a transactional platform that supports you in managing the daily workload in your healthcare organisation. The extensible data model based on openEHR and FHIR, open REST interfaces, software development kits and visual editors for creating forms and database queries provide comprehensive options for efficiently meeting your requirements. Your digitalisation strategy will bear fruit with every new application.

Made for the cloud

With the HIP CDR, you benefit from the advantages of a modern cloud architecture. Efficient and highly available operation is easy on your resources and your nerves. Thanks to the comprehensive multi-client capability, you can manage user directories, databases, forms, etc. independently and separately with your HIP CDR instance. Clients are easy to manage via our administration interface.

The HIP CDR grows with your needs. Whether it’s a hospital network or a national health record: With support for cloud databases, you choose the response times and storage size you need for successful operation – without having to worry about backup strategies.

Visualise your patient data (Add-on)

The Patient Viewer provides you with an intuitive user interface that seamlessly and comprehensively displays patient contextual data from openEHR and FHIR.
