As a result, this report outlines the whole field of ICT and patient safety as seen from a holistic vision. It includes appropriate definitions, gathers and analyses factual data, describes the main workshop outcomes, and then makes a defi nitive set of recommendations for future research on ICT and patient safety. Among the consistent roadmapping that is currently being undertaken in relation to European research, this report provides yet another vision of important, possible research directions.
This report was prepared by the eHealth for Safety study team (empirica GmbH and Symbion) on behalf of the European Commission, Information Society and Media Directorate General.
