The new eHealth Toolkit ‘For an accelerated deployment and better use of eHealth in Europe’ aims to provide clarity to policymakers and other stakeholders in the eHealth arena. This Toolkit sets out recommendations on how to create a favourable environment for innovative technologies in healthcare and identifies three priority areas:
- the development of an innovative business model for eHealth
- the need for common standards and interoperability profiles
- and the construction of a competitive single eHealth market in Europe.
These recommendations are based on COCIR’s market statistics which have been published for the first time in the Toolkit. A Glossary of Terms is also included to bring clarity to the eHealth debate.
