Nordic eHealth Indicators

Organisation of research, first results and the plan for the future

The Nordic eHealth Research Network was established in 2012 as a forum for policy makers and researchers to jointly work towards measurable policy goals and data that can be exploited to steer decision making related to goals and their implementation. This report describes first results of the Network: eHealth policy analysis and first common Nordic eHealth indicators. The results show similarities and also some differences in the eHealth policies, priorities and implementation. Interesting similarities and differences in availability and use of eHealth services in the Nordic countries were found with the first comparable eHealth indicators. The results create a basis for Evidence-based policy making as well as benchmarking and learning best practices from each other.

Hide / Show Abstract

The Nordic countries share many similarities; culturally, politically and in the health care and welfare systems. The countries have a long tradition in collaboration in the health sector. All our countries have also progressed quite far in developing and implementing IT-systems in health care. Even though we have evident similarities also within health IT, there are also differences in policies, priorities and responsibilities for implementing health IT systems. This creates a fruitful basis for benchmarking and learning best practice from each other.
