eHealth – Final European progress report

The eHealth Action Plan was affirmed in 2004 and had several targets it wanted to reach by 2010. These targets are documented in the final progress report which has been published recently.
There have been and no doubt there will be more challenges in the future but a lot has already been achieved concerning eHealth and “Europe is the global leader in nation-wide implementation of eHealth solutions”. Not only the member states of the European Union were in involved in the actions but also Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey. E-Prescriptions, teleHealth and eHealth infrastructure are not merely policy debates but have been implemented to a certain extent or are on the agenda for the near future.
