Web Community For eHealth Procurers In EU

August 2017

General Practitioners

Country of origin: Europe

The community dedicated to eHealth procurers at ePractice.eu is an initiative sponsored by the European Commission to help practitioners in eHealth procurement in Europe to meet and share their experiences and knowledge, to ask for advice and provide support. Analysts believe that the move represents EC's commitment on health related issues.

The community is open to practitioners from European national and regional administrations, from public and private organisations, from academia and research centres. Collaboration of such diverse groups is expected to generate new ideas and new approaches contributing to the eHealth procurement community.

The eHealth Procurers Forum is an open space to express opinions and exchange knowledge and where members are encouraged to provide contributions and participate in the discussions and events. It is not an official Commission site. The community is mainly focused on technical and organisational aspects of eHealth Procurement.

The main proposed topics are: Computer assisted surgery, Decision support systems, Electronic health records, Health portals, Homecare & Telecare Services, Hospital information systems, Medical Imaging, Patient summary, Personal Health Systems, Regional/national Health Information Networks, Telemedicine services, Wearable/Portable Systems for Health monitoring.
