Current Implementation Status

On June 25th 2020 the final German translation of the IDDSI framework and its detailed definitions were published after a thorough review by experts in the field. The framework is supported by the Austrian Association of Speech and Language Pathologists (logopädieaustria) and the Austrian Association of Dietitians. Currently, various regional health care providers are implementing the IDDSI framework. However, there exists no nation-wide implementation consensus yet.

Reference Group

An IDDSI reference group is currently being assembled in Austria. It will be a cross sector collaboration of professionals who will promote, monitor, support, advocate and communicate recommendations for implementation of IDDSI standards within Austrian health care system, its providers and organizations.
