EHTEL is the one multi-stakeholder organisation within Europe that brings together organisations and individuals engaged in all aspects of eHealth.
There has never been a more crucial time for health and social care stakeholders to engage with each other to shape and influence emerging models of healthcare delivery through data and digital technologies.
Since 1999, its unique structure enables the exchange of ideas and information leading to innovation and improvement in the delivery of eHealth solutions and the transformation of health and social care. It does not lobby on behalf of particular groups but rather facilitates interaction between all of them.

The EHTEL ecosystem
The EHTEL ecosystem is a wider community of organisations which includes organisations that represent a variety of key stakeholders.
We team up with non-governmental organisations, particularly for purposes of policy-making and policy development. We liaise with many types of organisations either as a group or bi-laterally. Here are a few examples of these organisational types:
- Webinars and the EHTEL Symposium on the topics of the moment: Interoperability, the European Health Data Space(s), ePrescribing, Patient Empowerment, Mobile Health, Semantic Interoperability, Hybrid Care.
- EHTELconnect, a set of services built on the expertise of EHTEL’s multi-stakeholder membership and tailored to your individual needs - which involve groups like Ministries of Health, Competence Centres, and one representing Patients, Citizens and Consumers.
- Imagining 2029, reflecting EHTEL's vision of the future of health and care systems in 2029, by encouraging active input from all the members of its ecosystem.
