Ministers will hold a further public debate on e-Health. The Commission will present its action plan for a European e-Health Area and ministers are expected to adopt conclusions inviting Member States to further develop and implement e-Health as part of national public health strategies. The conclusions would draw on the results of the Presidency’s e-Health Conference held in Cork on 5-6 May. The “e-Health action plan” covers everything from electronic prescriptions and computerised health records to using new systems and services to cut waiting times and reduce errors. e-Health spending within national health budgets is estimated to rise to around 5% by the end of the decade from 1-2% today, and the emerging “e-Health industry” has a turnover of €11 billion. The implementation of the action plan should contribute to better care at the same or lower cost. Read more
