This report presents the results of the eHealth Benchmarking study carried out by empirica on behalf of the European Commission, DG Information Society and Media. The study aimed to collate and analyse existing eHealth monitoring and benchmarking sources in order to identify best practice in data gathering and to develop a framework for an EU-wide eHealth Benchmarking approach.
The report is structured as follows:
- Chapter 2 presents the main outcomes of a search for eHealth monitoring and benchmarking sources in the 27 Member States of the European Union, Iceland, Norway, Canada and the United States of America conducted by the study.
- Chapter 3 brings together key lessons learned from 12 eHealth Benchmarking Good Practice cases in the areas of content, methodology, response rate and financing.
- Based on the analysis of the identified data sources, an indicator framework for eHealth monitoring and benchmarking is presented in chapter 4, covering key eHealth actors and eHealth-related activities.
- Finally, chapter 5 contains recommendations on how an eHealth Benchmarking approach covering the EU Member States and possible further countries can be implemented in practical terms.
