It also introduces a set of policy recommendations for the European Commission and other stakeholders, with the ultimate objectives being:
• improvement of the overall quality and efficiency of provision of health services in general via eHealth services, taking into consideration the present and future socio- economic and financial challenges faced by national healthcare authorities in Europe;
