Final consultation on the EPF eHealth position paper

EPF needs your input to finalise our formal position statement regarding eHealth.

A first round of consultation was carried out from Mid-April to the end of May. Following this, comments received were integrated into a final draft of the eHealth position paper.

eHealth (the use of electronic means to provide healthcare services or information) is often described as a solution towards sustainability of healthcare and benefit patients. eHealth could help improve chronic diseases and multimorbidity management, enhance patient centric care, foster cross-border healthcare, and increase efficiency of healthcare systems and equity of access.

Objectives of this paper:

  • To provide the patients’ perspective on various aspects of eHealth services
  • To compile interesting findings from various eHealth projects where EPF was a partner and looked at the patients’ perspective on eHealth, empowerment or user requirements.
  • To provide recommendations for eHealth policies at EU level and for research in this area
