The Nordic eHealth Research Network was established in 2012 as a forum for policy makers and researchers to jointly work towards measurable policy goals and data that can be exploited to steer decision making related to goals and their implementation. This report describes first results of the Network: eHealth policy analysis and first common Nordic eHealth indicators. The results show similarities and also some differences in the eHealth policies, priorities and implementation. Interesting similarities and differences in availability and use of eHealth services in the Nordic countries were found with the first comparable eHealth indicators. The results create a basis for Evidence-based policy making as well as benchmarking and learning best practices from each other.

Introduction

Access to good quality care, equity, and solidarity are values shared across health care systems in Europe. All European Union health systems also aim at ensuring patient-centred healthcare provision that is responsive to individual needs, while also aiming to make the systems financially sustainable. A shift in focus towards preventive measures is expected to reduce the cost burden by avoiding the occurrence of disease and its associated treatment costs. (Ref. no. 1)
