This study (published 2011) monitors eHealth strategies in the EU. It assesses the progress made on implementing the national eHealth programmes and plans to review fulfilment of the objectives proposed in the national roadmaps and reinforce commitments towards eHealth development and deployment.
This eHealth progress report assists the national authorities in the Member States, Iceland and Norway in their efforts to comply with the objectives contained in 2004 eHealth Action Plan and transferred into their national eHealth programmes/plans.
The study covers in detail proposals for priority actions needed for successful implementation of national eHealth programmes/plans, specific for each Member State, Iceland and Norway.
In addition the study identifies trends and analyses lessons learned via best practices. An eHealth progress report also serves as a basis for further direction of eHealth policy and research activities in eHealth at the EU level.
