ICT is flagship project of the EU Action Plan

"ICT for Health" has been integrated into the action plan of the EU Baltic Sea Strategy by the EU Commission. This decision ensures strong political support all over the Baltic Sea Region during the project’s lifetime. The main aim of the project is to strengthen the social acceptance of telemedicine.

In October 2009, the European Council gave the go-ahead for realising the EU Baltic Sea Strategy. Thus, an action plan was validated, containing concrete projects for improving the wealth of the Baltic Sea Region.

This action plan is being continuously updated. Its most recent version now also includes the "ICT for Health" project.

PSC in Oslo: First outputs

PSC Meeting in OsloOn 8th and 9th November 2010 the project members of the ICT for Health Project met in Oslo, Norway.

During the first day the Project Steering Committee discussed strategic questions, e.g. how to address the main risks throughout the project cycle and how to enhance the visibility of the project to the target groups. This can be achieved by reconsidering objectives, visibility and commitment and by integrating stakeholders as early as possible. The implementation of guidelines for an output quality review was also decided.

The second day was all dedicated to the work-packages. First outputs could be finalised, e.g. the concept of an eHealth Acceptance Index to measure the acceptance of eHealth technology by citizens, medical professionals and decision makers and to compare it. The survey will start in the upcoming months. Additionally, the concept of the eLearning programme SALUDA was finalised and will be published soon. Patients with chronic heart diseases can learn more about their disease. Another output is the recommendation on how to consider eHealth in the education of students and professionals. This is the basis for the upcoming development of learning content.

The next project meeting will take place on 7th and 8th March 2011 in Vilnius, Lithuania.
