BlackSea TeleDiab (BSTD) is a multidisciplinary research project whose aim is to promote the exchange of healthcare information between clinicians and scientists in countries of the Black Sea area to provide a means by which the care of patients with diabetes may be enhanced. The project is built on an existing organizational framework provided by the WHO Diabcare Quality Network (Q-Net) and the Black Sea Diab Action Project. The aim is to develop a standardized software package (in the national languages of the CCE/NIS Black Sea partners) for the storage and transfer of medical information and healthcare data between participating institutions. It will utilize a standard format for medical records based on the Good European Health Record (GEHR), a project within the Advanced Informatics in Medicine (AIM) program, which aims to develop and propagate a common architecture for computerized health records across Europe that can be used across clinical domains, countries, and computer systems.
