Introduction: Japanese German cooperation in medical informatics dates back to the 1980es and has been nurtured ever since by various groups of researchers. In 2013, the Japanese Association of Medical Informatics (JAMI) and the German Association for Medical Informatics, Biometry and Epidemiology (GMDS) signed a Memorandum of Understanding to encourage academic cooperation through common activities and exchange. In the wake of this agreement, the first official joint workshop of JAMI and GMDS took place in 2014 at Kloster Banz Germany. Focussing on Electronic Health Record Systems (EHRS), the DFG funded Japanese-German Workshop on Electronic Health Record Systems JGEHRS 2014 brought together more than 20 researchers to compare EHRS developments at national, regional and local level. JGEHRS resulted in a framework of quality requirements for EHRS [1]. Due to the success of JGEHRS 2014, an update of the current developments was given at JGEHRS 2016 in Munich Germany, which took place within the joint conference HEC2016 that embraced amongst others the Medical Informatics Europe conference MIE2016 and GMDS2016.

The University of Applied Sciences Osnabrück has entertained a regular academic exchange with Japanese Universities including the University Hospital Tokyo and Hamamatsu University [2] for many years. In light of these events and developments, JGEHRS 2018 takes place at GMDS2018 in Osnabrück and offers a new update of advanced EHRS projects.

Planned Discussion and Result: The discussion will embrace questions on electronic health record systems (EHRS) in transinstitutional settings and shall reflect first experiences with the framework of quality requirements for EHRS [1]. It will especially focus on particular Japanese or German experiences, insights and solutions on quality and innovation of EHRS and on comparisons of respective national aspects.
