The European Commission has unveiled an action plan to address barriers to
the full use of digital solutions in Europe's healthcare systems (07/12/2012)
The goal is to improve healthcare for the benefit of patients,
give patients more control of their care and bring down costs.
While patients and health professionals are enthusiastically using telehealth solutions and millions of
Europeans have downloaded smartphone apps to keep track of their health and wellbeing,
digital healthcare has yet to reap its great potential to improve healthcare and generate efficiency savings.
