"Assessment of financing opportunities available to Member States to support and boost investment in e-Health" SMART 2006/0056, Tender Specifications

Funded under: FP6-IST

Abstract

eHealth describes the application of information and communications technologies across the whole range of functions that affect the health sector. eHealth tools or solutions include products, systems and services that go beyond simply Internet-based applications. They include tools for health authorities and professionals as well as personalised health systems for patients and citizens. Examples include health information networks, electronic health records, telemedicine services, personal wearable and portable communicable systems, health portals, and many other information and communication technology-based tools assisting prevention, diagnosis, treatment, health monitoring, and lifestyle management.
eHealth played a clear role in the European Union's eEurope strategy, and is key to achieving stronger growth and creating highly qualified jobs in a dynamic, knowledgebased economy. It can improve access to healthcare and boost the quality and effectiveness of the services offered. eHealth systems and services combined with organisational changes and the development of new skills are key enabling tools. They can deliver significant improvements in access to care, quality of care, and the efficiency and productivity of the health sector. These commitments are equally firmly carried forward within the framework of the i2010 initiative.
