Abstract: The Electronic Health Record (EHR) refers to an electronically maintained, connectible, mass of pertinent, patient-related, healthcare information collected during one or many patient encounters. It constitutes patient demographic data, encounter notes, laboratory reports, prescription details, and past medical records, besides other medical data. The EHR in essence should facilitate the precise future diagnosis, treatment, and decision support processes of patient healthcare. Since EHR technology is a burgeoning science, many facets lie under-used or under-utilized. Its implementation is primarily confined to national pockets, managed by individual National Health Systems (NHS). True, universally interoperable, consolidated EHR schemes are still a thing for the future; a migratory patient may not have his national EHR available in distant territories. Further, global consolidation of related EHRs are still a distant dream. This paper articulates a unified, sound, precise, and secure methodology for achieving much-desired International Interoperability and inclusive efficiency in Ubiquitous, Universal, Consolidated Electronic Health Records, optimising the derived merits of this prime technology. Utilizing some popular EHR schemes as base models, such as Health Level 7's (HL7) Electronic Health Record Functional Model (EHR-FM) and similar systems, this overarching solution can be extrapolated to any ubiquitous EHR environment.
