beta Discussing the Digital Government Declaration

[...] * Improve the alignment of base registries in the EU. Robust and interoperable registries are the cornerstone of interoperable public services and should be designed to avoid making copies of citizens' data - sharing proofs of status/eligibility without too much actual sharing of data.

Well - this is true, ... but faces the lack of EU driven homogeneity on most policies. Healthcare is for most of it no EU competence, while the is a huge need of alignment needed. WHO is trying to solve that at world level. I think the EU Commission should be entitled of defining minimal interoperable dataset like in the Mutual Recognition of Competence process. The common denominator might be low at a start because of the variety of systems, but this is better start than nothing.

Alignment of base registries can be progressed if there was a uniform definition of what constitutes a register. This definition could be expanded over time to form an agreed statement of best practice. Government Digital Services require as a foundation the data sources that are the Statutory Registers. The Once Only principle would benefit greatly from a requirement of registers to be for example - 'Canonical' - for a single purpose. This would require Members States to not duplicate data across their registers. Loads more on this :-) Cheers John Murray
