Subject: Re: [emergency] Europe INSPIRE Data Specification on Human Health and Safety – Guidelines

Carl - thanks for this. I'll look into it and see what impacts/influence it may have for the Hospital Availability Exchange standard (EDXL-HAVE).

Thought this might be of interest.
This document specifies a harmonised data specification for the spatial data theme Human Health and
Safety as defined in Annex III of the INSPIRE Directive.
The theme “Human health and safety” (HH), as described in the INSPIRE Directive, covers a wide
range of data on diseases and related health problems, as well as other indications of health effects
that might be linked – directly or indirectly – with the quality of the environment. Given that definition,
several components of the scope of the theme “Human health and safety” have been identified,
- Health statistical data on diseases, poisoning, injuries, etc., and data on general health status
in a population, such as self-perceived health, people with health problems, smokers, etc.
- Biomarkers
- Determinants of health
- Health care / services data – for example on services provided by hospitals, health care
workforce, etc
- Safety
Please note that a new release candidate version (the last before the final version) will be published in the next few weeks. Will be mandatory to implement by public authorities in Europe starting in 2015.
