Description:
The ‘eHealth Action Plan 2012- 2020, Innovative Healthcare for the 21st Century’ aims at utilising eHealth to address current healthcare challenges. The activities can be largely divided into four groups: 1. Achieve wider interoperability in eHealth services; 2. Support research, development, innovation and competitiveness in eHealth; 3. Facilitate uptake and ensure wider deployment of eHealth and 4. Promote policy dialogue and international cooperation at global level. The Action Plan emphasises activities at the EU level, but it encourages all stakeholders such as national and regional authorities, health and social care providers, professional organisations, researchers and patients being active in this area and working closely together.
