ETSI eHealth workshop on Telemedicine
eHealth objectives of the Digital Agenda for Europe aimed to improve the quality of health care, reduce medical costs and foster independent living.
The rise of telemedicine services depends on the ubiquitous digitalisation of all sectors of society. Telemedicine is now harvesting the results of the digital revolution, but according to the World Health Organisation, only 8% of patients today enjoy access to telemedicine (telecare, telemonitoring).
The Digital Agenda for Europe aims to achieve by 2020 the widespread deployment of telemedicine services.
Success will depend on the environment in which regulations and standards for telemedicine are to be created.
