The second Financing eHealth workshop, ”Procuring for health benefits: critical factors for beneficial deployment of innovative eHealth and telemedicine services”, took place at the World of Health IT 2008 conference in Copenhagen, Denmark. With input from more than 40 selected experts, the workshop was a tremendous success and provided useful input to the study. Further, the European Commission was provided with valuable input regarding the planning of further research activity and funding.
The Commission’s dissemination of the report to the workshop has triggered extensive interest in the eHealth news media: see www.ehealtheurope.net/news/4439/report_on_telehealth_worshop_published and www.telehealthlawcenter.org/?c=134&a=1935. The report itself is available on the Commission’s web pages and at the download section of the Financing eHealth site.
