Funds for: delivering sustainable eHealth systems and services and providing interoperable applications at European level
Main beneficiaries: public or private bodies established in Member States

Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
* To promote cooperation and the exchange of information among Member States aiming at delivering sustainable eHealth systems and services and providing interoperable applications at European level;
* To provide the essential interoperability and standardisation in the health area, including ehealth and telemedicine;
* To contribute to the Pillar 1 and Pillar 2 of the Commission Communication on digital transformation in health and care:
– Citizens’ secure access to their health data, also across borders;
– Personalised medicine through shared European data infrastructure
* To support Member States in the cross-border exchange of patient data from ePrescriptions and Patient Summaries increasing continuity of care, patient safety, their access to highly specialised care and the sustainability of health systems

Priorities
* Lot 1 – Core Service Platform: For ePrescription and Patient Summary, including interoperability of electronic health records across borders, three dimensions of activities are envisaged:
– Governance actions: where eHDSI governing bodies will continue their activities to guide and orchestrate the set-up of the EU Cross-Border eHealth Information Services;
– Design and Development: refining eHDSI artefacts; implement guidelines and other documents adopted by the eHealth Network and eHDSI governance bodies; pursuing deeper integration with CEF Building Blocks; and preparing for possible new use cases and their Business Requirements under the digital strategy;
– Operations management: Commission will continue managing the operations of the system by maintaining the stable operation of central IT services; conducting activities established by test and audit frameworks; providing support to deploying countries and to countries already in routine operations;

* Lot 2 – Generic Services: The support will continue to target the set up and further technical development of National Contact Points for eHealth in order to enable the cross-border exchange of data from ePrescription and Patient Summaries:
– The costs of complying with new requirements for those countries already providing the services;
– The focus will be both on those countries who still want to join the cross-border exchange of data as well as those countries which have already set up their National Contact Points for eHealth and would like to broaden their services

Among financed actions
* To provide accurate and immediate key clinical information needed in an emergency situation abroad, regardless of communication problems between the patient and the health professional;
* To ensure continuity of care across borders both in terms on information and access to medicinal treatment;
* To facilitate access to highly specialised knowledge and care for patients suffering from rare and severe diseases;
* To create a possibility to collect and analyse clinical data across borders to support public health and research

Additional information
* This call for proposals is an open call for proposals

* Initial duration of the action: between 24 and 48 months

* Eligibility
– Proposals must be submitted by one organisation only (no consortium allowed);
– In order to be eligible, a proposal must be submitted by a legal entity supported by the national authority responsible for eHealth
