What we do

• We want to improve the life of European citizens regarding to medical challenges (e.g. illness, disability, prevention matters).

• We aim at this through the improvement of their safety, health and well-being and through involving them in the planning, development and implementation of digital solutions.

• We share eHealth ideas all over Europe – together with our partners. For that reason we support and involve our members in the planning, development and implementation of digital solutions.


All our Health Care Systems are facing the following challenges:

  •     Tight budget
  •     Demographic change
  •     Increase of chronical ill patients
  •     Lack of (young) health care providers (e.g. doctors) – especially in rural areas.

We are convinced that more eHealth services will have the capability to overcome these challenges and to sustain our level of Health Care in the future.

Using these services, it will be possible to increase productivity (means e.g. more patient at one time; less travel times; less double investigations) by implementing more

  • Teleconferencing
  • Teleconsulting
  • Teleradiology
  • Electronic Patient Record (EPR) and Electronic Health Record (EHR)

These telemedicine applications are more often used as doc-to-doc (d2d) services, rarely in doc-to-patient (e.g. telemonitoring) settings. A change is needed here regarding the changing role of citizens and patients from a rather passive actor to empowered and engaged citizens / patients. New eHealth service will have the capability to enhance and strenghten the Health Literacy of the patient, which will lead to a reduction of demands. Exemplary applications are:

  •     Health portals
  •     Telecoaching
  •     Personal health record.

To improve the Health Literacy by also improving the eHealth Literacy is one of the main fields of activities for the network.


Our network is focussing on this topics in international projects. We are searching for fundings that support our aims and give all our partners the possibility to work intensively on it.
