In the context of the X-eHealth – Exchanging Electronic Health Records in a common framework, a European funded project, we invite professionals, researchers, members of European Reference Networks (ERN) and eHealth Agencies, vendors, students and any stakeholder who are interested in the healthcare domain to form teams and participate in the X-eHealth Hackathon for Rare Diseases and Cancers. The hackathon aims to showcase state of the art applications in the area of rare diseases and cancers management focusing on the efficient exchange of electronic health records by reusing the specifications developed by the X-eHealth project, facilitating the link to the specific European Reference Network (ERN) resources (e.g. ERN Guidelines) and the connection to related ERN Registries.

On this basis and building upon the already in place Patient Summary, X-eHealth purpose is to develop the foundations for a common framework for medical imaging, discharge letters, laboratory results and rare diseases to flow both alongside citizens care pathway and across health entities between EU Member States and Neighbour Countries.
