What might eHealth systems in the region look like in five years? How will EU4Digital have helped?
Future healthcare can be imagined as a seamless and mobile patient experience from provider to provider and from country to country, as well as a continuity of health care provision and informed decision making for better health outcomes. Cross-border eHealth infrastructure and the ePrescription service will allow any citizen travelling abroad to receive prescribed medication from a local pharmacy. The sharing of Patient Summary information will help doctors understand patients’ medical history and make evidence-based clinical decisions.
The EU4Digital eHealth team aims to develop standards and guidelines to support cross-border health care in the Eastern partner countries, which is only possible when common understanding and cooperation is reached. To make this happen, the team has conducted an analysis of the current state of play regarding eHealth in the Eastern partner countries, and identified each country’s challenges and priorities. The resulting set of guidelines will serve as a basis for establishing cross-border ePrescription and Patient Summary services in the region.
