The EU4Digital eHealth team is organising an online workshop on 2 April. The workshop aims to bring together stakeholders from the six Eastern partner countries to assess discussion points raised in the previous online workshop on 11 February, and prepare for the physical country network meeting later in the quarter, as well as to further share views on aspects of trust and security integration with eHealth in the Eastern Neighbourhood countries.

The representatives of Eastern partner countries will present the best digital eHealth practices from their countries in a preliminary presentation, and the eHealth team will help them prepare for a more comprehensive presentation in the eHealth network meeting. 

The aim of this activity is to share knowledge in the region regarding innovations and developments in eHealth and to facilitate collaboration among partners who are interested in similar topics and initiatives.

The EU4Digital team will also share insights on trust and security maturity level, based on country assessments performed by the EU4Digital Trust and Security team, and will facilitate discussion on aspects regarding common guidelines for integrating trust and security into eHealth domain services in Eastern partner countries. This activity aims to include digital trust and security topics in the harmonised eHealth guidelines for the Eastern Partner countries.

Additionally, as a part of the video workshop, the eHealth collaboration platform will be discussed. A collaboration platform is a new communication space for stakeholders working on eHealth service and guideline development, and during this workshop the eHealth team and country representatives will agree on the next involvement steps in utilising the platform.

All the points discussed will serve to enhance the physical country network meeting (scheduled to take place in May in Kiev, though subject to change due to COVID-19 circumstances). The topics identified and clarified during this and previous video workshops will be discussed and elaborated in depth.
