 eHealth Observatory Research

Most countries have high-level policy documents on their strategies for
eHealth, but few have models for providing evidence of management
of eHealth infrastructure and application systems. Even fewer have
institutions that systematically measure effects of eHealth systems on
the health care of patients and citizens. The Danish eHealth Observatory
is partner in the Nordic eHealth research group. Here we contribute to
the development of measures in adequate dimensions and categories
of evidence, used to support strategic eHealth decisions in the Nordic
countries. This group study differences, similarities, and efforts to
develop common Nordic indicators to monitor adoption, use, progress,
and effects of national eHealth system implementations.
