Policy and legislation :: eHealth Action Plan 2012-2020: Innovative healthcare for the 21st century
7 December 2012
The European Commission's eHealth Action Plan 2012-2020 provides a roadmap to empower patients and healthcare workers, to link up devices and technologies, and to invest in research towards the personalised medicine of the future.
This means providing smarter, safer and patient-centred health services. Given the fast growing uptake of tablets and smartphones, the Action Plan also includes a special focus on mobile health (mHealth).
The eHealth Action Plan is a communication from the Commission to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions.
