EHTEL Briefing Paper: Policy lessons from a decade of eHealth – bringing a new direction into focus
With this Briefing Paper, EHTEL aims at reframing current policy approaches, by analysing how deployment of eHealth evolved and why not all goals have been reached until now. One key insight is that eHealth stakeholders and policy makers are disconnected from the realities “in the field”. Having identified a gap and by relying on EHTEL’s core competencies, we will bring solutions to all actors in order to successfully bridge this gap together. EHTEL is determined to contribute for pragmatic and reality-based solutions, which means to build upon practical and well grounded experience. It is our understanding that all actors and participants in healthcare – whether using an “e”, “m” or “Tele” for their communities – need to communicate, to exchange experiences in personal networks. And we are confident in the raise of a new breed of younger and elder leaders who understand the needs in healthcare.
