Report on the Public Consultation on eHealth Action Plan 2012-2020
In December 2009, Member States adopted the Council Conclusions on Safe and efficient healthcare through eHealth1, in which the Council specifically called on the Commission to "update the eHealth Action Plan". A public consultation is a mandatory exercise to give stakeholders the opportunity to give their opinion on any important European initiative. The public consultation was launched on 31 March 2011 and closed on 30 May 2011. The consultation sought to validate four proposed objectives and to explore possible actions to be undertaken in next years. The four objectives proposed were:

  • Objective 1: Increase awareness of the benefits and opportunities of eHealth, and empower citizens, patients and healthcare professionals.
  • Objective 2: Address issues currently impeding eHealth interoperability
  • Objective 3: Improve legal certainty for eHealth
  • Objective 4: Support research and innovation in eHealth and development of a competitive European market.

239 participants contributed to the consultation representing different stakeholders including non-governmental organisations, academia, enterprises, health and social care providers and public authorities from many Member States.
