Description

The #SmartHealthSystems study shows European Union Member States are advancing at different speeds in the digital transformation of the healthcare sector. Countries that are succeeding in digitalizing their healthcare systems feature an effective strategy, strong political leadership and a coordinating institution with a clear national mandate. The European Commission and Member States should continue to foster the exchange of best practices between health systems and promote common technical specifications and standards for digital health tools and exchange formats.
