Commission Recommendation on cross-border interoperability of electronic health record systems

2 July 2008

eHealth initiatives to support medical assistance while travelling and living abroad

The Recommendation is intended to support the premise that connecting people, systems and services is vital for the provision of good healthcare in Europe insofar as it is necessary to enable the free flow of patients as well as eHealth products and services, and hence may contribute significantly to the establishment and functioning of the internal market.

Recommendation in all languages: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=CELEX:32008H0594:EN:NOT
