Commission seek views on future of mHealth

20 May, 14 | by ltempler

The European Commission is appealing to stakeholders to respond to a public consultation on their Green Paper on mobile health. They especially seek comment on the barriers that are preventing the full potential of mobile health from being unlocked. The deadline for responses is 3 July 2014.

Topics of consultation include:

  • What specific security safeguards in mHealth solutions could help prevent unnecessary and unauthorized processing of health data?
  • What measures are needed to fully realize the potential of mHealth generated ‘Big Data’ in the EU while complying with legal and ethical requirements?
  • What good practice exists to better inform end-users about the quality and safety of mHealth solutions e.g. certifications schemes?
  • The potential contribution of mHealth in constraining and curbing healthcare costs in the EU

EAHP member associations will discuss potential policy in the area of mHealth at its General Assembly in Sofia in June, and make a response reflecting the agreed points from members at that meeting.

This information was originally published on the EAHP website. More detail can be found here
