The Calliope thematic network is co-funded by the European Commission and has been initiated by 17 health authorities and 11 organisations representing networks of physicians, community pharmacists, patients, industry and health insurers.
It represents a targeted effort aiming at the establishment of an appropriately governed, composed and structured open forum, with the focal goal to support Member States to implement interoperable eHealth solutions, in close collaboration with the key actors.
The first set of its operational objectives include the elaboration of a common Interoperability Road map; review and advancement of the EU Interoperability Recommendation and; facilitation of pre-standardisation processes through liaison with SDOs.
L'EESSI est un système informatique destiné à aider les organismes de sécurité sociale dans l'UE à échanger des informations plus rapidement et d'une manière plus sécurisée, conformément à la réglementation européenne sur la coordination de la sécurité sociale. Les organismes nationaux échangeront toutes les informations sur les dossiers transfrontaliers de sécurité sociale au moyen de documents électroniques structurés.
Ces documents seront acheminés par l'EESSI (hébergé au niveau central par la Commission européenne) vers leur destination dans un autre pays de l'UE. Le personnel des organismes de sécurité sociale pourra trouver le bon destinataire dans un autre pays de l'UE à l'aide d'un répertoire des organismes nationaux.
EHTEL: eHealth Focal Point for Europe
Founded in 1999, EHTEL (the European Health Telematics Association) is a pan European multi-stakeholder forum providing a leadership and networking platform for European corporate, institutional and individual actors dedicated to the betterment of healthcare delivery through eHealth.
EHTEL serves and convenes a growing membership of more than 50 organisations that come from various viewpoints but united in their interest to make eHealth work. By collecting and distilling their voices through work groups and publications, EHTEL amplifies the constituency for eHealth in the European arena. We also facilitate the sharing of experience with colleagues and representatives across Europe and beyond.
epSOS aimed to design, build and evaluate a service infrastructure that demonstrates cross-border interoperability between electronic health record systems in Europe. epSOS attempts to offer seamless healthcare to European citizens. Key goals are to improve the quality and safety of healthcare for citizens when travelling to another European country. Moreover, it concentrates on developing a practical eHealth framework and ICT infrastructure that enables secure access to patient health information among different European healthcare systems.
epSOS can make a significant contribution to patient safety by reducing the frequency of medical errors and by providing quick access to documentation as well as by increasing acessibility of ones prescribed medicine also abroad. In emergency situations, this documentation provides the medical personnel with life-saving information and reduces the (sometimes needless) repetition of diagnostic procedures.
Joint Action Health Workforce is a three year project funded by the Health Programme of the European Union. The general objective of the Joint Action is to provide a platform for collaboration and exchange between Member States to support them to prepare the future of the health workforce for the expected changes.
The Joint Action works towards better understanding of the terminology, and access to timely data, updated informatin on mobility trends, guidelines on qualitative and quantitative planning methodology, estimated future skills and competencies.
La réglementation de l'UE sur le marché unique autorise les citoyens et les entreprises à se déplacer à l'intérieur de l'Espace économique européen pour travailler, étudier, faire du commerce, etc.
Si votre autorité est concernée par la mise en œuvre concrète de cette réglementation, elle devra peut-être échanger des informations avec des organismes similaires dans d'autres pays.
Le système d’information du marché intérieur (IMI) facilite ces échanges.
Worldwide mobility of health professionals is a growing phenomenon, impacting the health systems of receiving, transit, and sending countries.
EU Member States are increasingly affected by these developments - which might occur simultaneously within the same country.
Therefore, the need to develop European policies to adequately address these issues is urgent. At the same time, reliable and differentiated knowledge and findings as a basis for such policy are lacking. MoHProf will contribute to improving this knowledge base and facilitate European policy on human resource planning.
The current phase of the NETC@RDS for e-EHIC ID project is aiming at achieving initial deployment of an on-line service for the “electronification” of the European Health Insurance Card (e-EHIC) in 16 EFTA/EU countries. The initial deployment project phase now extends implementations to enable healthcare access for European citizens who provide evidence of entitlement in any of the upcoming 260 Service Units (SU) and around 500 Service Points (SP) across the 16 participating countries (AT, BG, CZ, DE, FI, FR, GR, HU, IT, LI, NL, NO, PL, RO, SL, SK) at the end of the project.
More specifically, NETC@RDS enables the Health Practitioners to check foreign patients' entitlement to health care. It is based on an agreement, so-called the General Agreement, between Health Insurance Organisations (HIO) aiming to provide easier access to cross-border healthcare for citizens travelling abroad but inside the EEE/EU and Switzerland.
Our goal is to build a better, healthier future for people all over the world. Working through offices in more than 150 countries, WHO staff work side by side with governments and other partners to ensure the highest attainable level of health for all people.
Together we strive to combat diseases – infectious diseases like influenza and HIV and noncommunicable ones like cancer and heart disease. We help mothers and children survive and thrive so they can look forward to a healthy old age. We ensure the safety of the air people breathe, the food they eat, the water they drink – and the medicines and vaccines they need.
The aim of the STORK project is to establish a European eID Interoperability Platform that will allow citizens to establish new e-relations across borders, just by presenting their national eID. Cross-border user authentication for such e-relations will be applied and tested by the project by means of five pilot projects that will use existing government services in EU Member States. In time however, additional service providers will also become connected to the platform thereby increasing the number of cross-border services available to European users.
Thus in the future, you should be able to start a company, get your tax refund, or obtain your university papers without physical presence; all you will need to access these services is to enter your personal data using your national eID, and the STORK platform will obtain the required guarantee (authentication) from your government.
The TAS³ Integrated Project (Trusted Architecture for Securely Shared Services) was a 4 years project aiming to have a European-wide impact on services based upon personal information, which is typically generated over a human lifetime and therefore is collected & stored at distributed locations and used in a multitude of business processes.
The project ended 31 December 2011.
The TAS³ project has researched & developed a trusted architecture and set of adaptive security services which preserve personal privacy and confidentiality in dynamic environments.
With the issuing of the Directive 2005/36 on the recognition of professional qualifications, an informal group of competent authorities for the 5 health professions impacted by the Directive (dental surgeons, doctors, midwives, nurses and pharmacists) from 15 EU State Members was established in 2006.
Continuous relationships with the European Parliament and European Commission (DG Employment, Market, Information Society mainly), with EU projects (Netcards, IMI, HPCB, then epSOS, Calliope, STORK, TAS3…), with European associations (PGEU, FEDCAR, CPME, Ehtel...) facilitate the preparation and the realization of the HPRO Card work (2007-2010).
The mission of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.
The OECD provides a forum in which governments can work together to share experiences and seek solutions to common problems. We work with governments to understand what drives economic, social and environmental change. We measure productivity and global flows of trade and investment. We analyse and compare data to predict future trends. We set international standards on a wide range of things, from agriculture and tax to the safety of chemicals.
