Lithuanian eHealth Strategy Project Aproved

ePractice.eu portal announced that the Lithuanian eHealth Strategy Project for 2007-2015 has just been approved by the eHealth Development Coordination Board, meeting at the Ministry of Health.

The eHealth Strategy Project aims to improve healthcare services by maintaining the quality and continuity of patient-orientated services, using information and communication technologies. Lithuanian policy-makers took into account the Council of Europe's statement in 2003 that eHealth is the single most important healthcare system revolution, on a par with the use of modern medicines, vaccines or even such healthcare measures as sanitation or clean water.

Haroldas Baubinas, the Chairman of the eHealth Development Coordination Board, stated that the Board had approved the principles of the eHealth Strategy and would prepare measures for its implementation. It is not merely a political initiative for the information technology specialists, claimed Prof. Arūnas Lukoševičius, the Deputy Chairman of the eHealth Development Coordination Board, who drafted the eHealth Strategy. "This is a strategy for the joint action of the entire healthcare sector that ensures the management and use of healthcare data in order to improve the state of health of the Lithuanian population," stressed Prof. Lukoševičius. "Information technologies provide new opportunities for using the overall value of medical data for the promotion of public health."
