Establishing the value and business model for sustainable eHealth services in Europe
Several large-scale pilots focused on digital health were recently launched in Europe, including initiatives planned and supported by the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), which will end in 2020.
VALUeHEALTH focused on establishing how eHealth interoperability can create, deliver, and capture value for all stakeholders. The consortium developed an evidence-based business plan for sustainable interoperability, which included sustainable revenue streams for developing and operating self-funding pan-European eHealth Services beyond 2020. The aim was to identify a sustainable market to scale up cross-border interoperability.
VALUeHEALTH developed models, concepts, business models, plans, and roadmaps through the involvement of experts in the eHealth interoperability field. The project aimed to create a dynamic and sustainable framework where the contribution of standards and standardisation for ICT could be maximised for active and healthy ageing.

- Open D3.1 report
- D3.2 adoption and incentives roadmap. The focus was on policy, process and organisationally-related aspects of interoperability. A strong underlying assumption was that, to turn initiatives for change into credible, broadly endorsed, and financially sustainable endeavours, approaches need to be considered that win hearts as well as persuade minds. Particular emphasis was put on health data quality, health professional trust, and accountability. The incentives explored were both financial and non-financial.
