Study on the Legal Framework for Interoperable eHealth in Europe

Study on the Legal Framework for Interoperable eHealth in Europe
The objective of the study is to identify and analyse the legal and regulatory framework for electronic health services in the EU Member States and for cross-border services when provided via eHealth applications, in particular in the areas of electronic health records, telemedicine and e-prescription. This report contains the analysis and assessment of the information collected in the Member States and draws some conclusions and recommendations.

To conduct the study the author relied on a network of national legal experts in the 27 Member States. The correspondents are recognized legal experts in the field of this Study themselves but they also contacted the key stakeholders in their country in order to collect all recent information to draft a reliable country profile on the legal status, plans and trends in the field of eHealth of the Member State. Between May and August 2008 these national experts wrote their national country profile on the basis of a common template. All country profiles were subsequently submitted for review and comments to the national representatives of the i2010 subgroup on eHealth.6 The country reports are available on the European Commission's eHealth portal website.

The underlying this study report contains an analysis and assessment of the information provided in the national reports. Starting from the information collected in the Member States, the main objective is to contribute to a better insight into the legal framework for eHealth in Europe.
