20 Years of European Commission support to the development of eHealth
20 years of EU support for eHealth
The European Commission has been supporting eHealth research and development through Framework Programmes for over 20 years now and contributed to the emergence of new generations of technologies in several fields of healthcare. With the support of the Member States, industries and users it has elaborated a strategy of deployment of these technologies to ensure ever improving and sustainable health services.
The research programmes, together with the national eHealth research and deployment activities, have put Europe in a leading position in the use of eHealth solutions. ICT infrastructures, eHealth applications and telemedicine services have shown to improve the quality and efficiency of health services, while providing us with economic opportunities such as jobs, innovation and growth of the emerging European eHealth industry, currently estimated to be worth ca €15 billion.
