The eHealth Governance Initiative - eHGI (www.ehgi.eu) is working to establish a governance structure for eHealth within Europe in order to ensure continuity of healthcare both at home and across borders. It is achieving this through the development of strategies, priorities, recommendations and guidelines designed to deliver eHealth in Europe in a co-ordinated way. This work involves all stakeholders but especially patients and healthcare professionals. The Initiative seeks a strong coordinated political leadership and the integration of eHealth into national health policies. It achieves this through its links to the Article 14 eHealth Network that brings together national authorities responsible for eHealth on a voluntary basis to work on common orientations in this area and to promote an interoperable and sustainable eHealth implementation across Europe. The eHealth Network was established by Article 14(2) of Directive 2011/24/EU and it was considered desirable, in order to achieve coordination, coherence and consistency and to avoid duplication, that the eHealth Governance Initiative should operate within the framework of the Network and the objectives assigned to it.

EHTEL - also in collaboration with its EHTEL/ELO network of leading eHealth competence centres in Europe - contributes to the Work Package 8 Interoperability, Standards and Market (ISM) as well as - in collaboraton with its patients' stakeholder group - to Work Package 6 - Trust and Acceptance. Furthermore EHTEL contributes to the dissemination of the eHGI and the liaison with other European project like SUSTAINS. Last but not least EHTEL provides editorial and content management support to the eHGI website.

The Joint Action e-Health Governance Initiative JA-EHGov has received funding from the European Union, in the framework of the Health Programme.

The project SEHGovIA is a Thematic Network and is partially funded by the European Commission under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP).
