The Workshop on Next Generation of Electronic Health Records, organized by the ACM Future of Computing Academy Co-creation Group, was held on 21 March in Copenhagen. It sought to address questions raised by the growth of data-driven healthcare. What kinds of electronic health records (EHRs) should we aim for in the future, and what new types of data support the effective delivery of healthcare?

The workshop’s goal was to leverage research and practice in new ways by bringing computing research in healthcare into conversation with relevant collaborators, identifying key problem areas for future computational researchers by facilitating comparison between cases and practical experiences with next-generation EHR across contexts.

Keynote speakers included Gitte Fangel, CMIO at Bispebjerg and Frederiksberg Hospital in Denmark; Andrew Rosenberg, CIO at Michigan Medicine; and Jørgen Schøler Kristensen, CMO at Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark. Participants included nurses, physicians, and informatics and medical experts from academia.
