eHealth Action Plan 2012-2020 not yet published

The eHealth Action Plan due to be published at the end of October 2012 has been delayed. On 06 November 2012 Commissioner for the Digital Agenda Neelie Kroes announced that the plan would instead be published β€œbefore the end of this year.”

The eHealth Action Plan will replace the old 2004 Action Plan and will run from 2012 to 2020. Through different policy initiatives the plan will broadly seek to:

  • Increase awareness of the benefits and opportunities of eHealth, and empower citizens, patients and healthcare professionals;
  • Address issues currently impeding eHealth interoperability;
  • Improve legal certainty for eHealth;
  • Support research and innovation in eHealth and development of a competitive European market.

This dossier could be of key importance to VPH and the Policy Affairs Working Group will inform you as soon as it is published.
