COCIR preliminary input to the eHealth Stakeholder Group’s priorities and work programme

02 September 2020

COCIR commends the European Commission for renewing the mandate of the eHealth Stakeholder Group. Now more than ever, the eHealth Stakeholder Group should play an important role in advising and supporting the European Commission, the EU Member States and the eHealth Network in their vision of a digital transformation of health and care, especially as health has taken a central role in our daily lives. We do hope the eHealth Stakeholder Group will have regular interactions with the eHealth Network to ensure necessary dialogue is established between the eHealth Stakeholder Group and the Policymakers in charge of the Digital Health programme.

The current COVID-19 pandemic crisis revealed the need for a call for action on the importance of, and the urgent need to accelerate the use of digital health technologies including telehealth in order to provide the best care and protection to patients.

COCIR remains committed in positively and pragmatically contributing to the topics that will be chosen by the eHealth Stakeholder Group.
