Nordic eHealth benchmarking

From piloting towards established practice

This report proposes a long-term management of earlier NeRN work to be utilized also in the European and OECD context, and indicators on patients and citizens' use and experiences of eHealth services. An update to prior eHealth policy analysis shows an increase on governance and stakeholder involvement in all countries. The existing NeRN indicators form a good basis for continued monitoring. Common eHealth indicators from citizens’ point of view are needed. Current Nordic citizen surveys offer a good basis for this. Decisions on governance of eHealth benchmarking work and of collaboration between several different reporting organisations are required for long-term maagement on eHealth benchmarking. With very similar eHealth policy goals, the EU, WHO, and OECD should join forces in defining common indicators to be collected nationally and reported internationally (e.g. by Eurostat).



Making available the results of Nordic eHealth monitoring

Making commonly agreed indicator data available to policy makers and researchers was one of the goals of the NeRN network for the mandate period 2015–2017. To this end, the network has sought solutions for the publication of the recommended common Nordic eHealth indicators. Both national publishing channels and international online publication systems have been reviewed.
