Open consultation on telemedicineComments Off on Open consultation on telemedicine


The Commission has called for experts to share their views on telemedicine by a public consultation. The questionnaire responses will determine the structure of the TeleHealth 2007 conference and the way in which the national problems will be taken on board. Experts are invited to share their experience and give concrete examples of their main achievements in the field, for the development of telemedicine solutions as well as the perceived impact of their activities. 


Telemedicine refers to the use of information and communications technologies (ICT) for the delivery of health care. Typical national issues will not be addressed, but the focus will be on topics that are common to several Member States or related to cross-border activities and would benefit from a European impulse.


The consultation is open until  the 26th  of October.
