INTRODUCTION: The PropeR EHR system (PropeRWeb) is a multidisciplinary electronic health record (EHR) system for multidisciplinary use in extramural patient care for stroke patients. DESIGN: The system is built using existing open source components and is based on open standards. It is implemented as a web application using servlets and Java Server Pages (JSP's) with a CORBA connection to the database servers, which are based on the OMG HDTF specifications. PropeRWeb is a generic system which can be readily customized for use in a variety of clinical domains. EVALUATION: The system proved to be stable and flexible, although some aspects (a.o. user friendliness) could be improved. These improvements are currently under development in a second version
