The concurrent use initiative

The Concurrent Use initiative was started in 2012. It had the goal of showing the sustainable value of three basic CEN/TC251 standards for semantic interoperability:

  1. EHRcom ISO EN 13606 Health informatics - Electronic health record communication,
  2. HISA ISO EN 12967 Health informatics - Service architecture, and
  3. ContSys ISO EN 13940 Health informatics - System of concepts to support continuity of care.

CEN identified that concurrent use provides decision makers with a coherent strategy for improving the health and care of Europe’s citizens and opens up the US, regional, national and local markets to quality solutions by using these three standards.
