A conformity assessment scheme
for interoperable eHealth in Europe
The eHealth Interoperability Conformity Assessment Scheme for Europe (EURO-CAS) concluded in December 2018. It has developed a Conformity Assessment Scheme (CAS) for Europe, which will promote the adoption and take-up of interoperability testing of eHealth solutions against identified eHealth standards and profiles defined in the Refined eHealth European Interoperability Framework.
The project was led by IHE-Europe (BE) and coordinated by EIBIR (AT), and joined by fourteen national and regional government bodies, competence centres, and associations.
Summary of project achievements
The EURO-CAS project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 727028.

The project is organised in six work packages, each led by different members of the consortium, and working collaboratively towards the conformity assessment scheme for Europe.
Key reports and project results will be made available to the public on the website; some of them for consultation.
The EURO-CAS consortium consists of representatives and competence centres of key European regions and Member States, standards organisations, as well as experts and international associations.
