The eHealth Action Plan 2012-2020 is a roadmap launched by the European Commission -DG Connect - to achieve smart and sustainable healthcare in Europe from now till 2020. To get there, research projects are fundamental, but also political leadership. Patients, doctors and nurses need to get the skills and confidence to use these ideas. For example, epSOS e-prescriptions are a cost effective and a safer way to get the medicines you have been prescribed at home when you are abroad. And in case of sudden sickness abroad, doctors are also able to access your medical records in order to give you a better diagnosis. Technology can help to stay healthy and independent at home, without long trips to see the doctor. But eHealth opportunities are not restrictive to digital users. Telehealth solutions allow patients to manage chronic conditions from their home providing safe, convenient and cost-effective care. The European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing will bring telehealth solutions to 1.9 million Europeans across 20 regions of Europe. Achieving the eHealth Action Plan means rethinking our traditional ways of providing healthcare, as it puts patients at the centre, allows a more cost effective health care and at the same time provides good business opportunities for Europe.
