TELEMATIC HEALTHCARE - REMOTENESS AND MOBILITY FACTORS IN COMMON EUROPEAN SCENARIOS

Objective

HERMES seeks to counter fragmented telemedicine in Europe, where systems are not usable across different national health services, through harmonisation based on agreed standards and methods for the development and quality assurance of services and technologies. The project will employ existing hardware, software and networks to establish its own corporate services network. With a single European number for access and automatic routing and security/access management, this will operate via national telemedicine access points controlling all communications. The initial focus will be on emergency telemedical services (urgent response services). Out of the current telemedical services in operation over 50 % of the requests are of an urgent response nature.
