Report from The European Homecare Conference which took place 4 December, reveals some interesting perspectives on home healthcare monitoring from various EU countries. Useful links at the bottom of the article too.

And a related item on the EU’s initiative on an all-inclusive digital society answers such questions as: What does the EU mean by an all-inclusive digital society? Why is it important? See the PublicTechnolgy.net’s Frequently Asked Questions Page which, in effect, forms a comprehensive briefing on the topic. In particular, I noted “The Commission will issue in 2008 a Recommendation on e-Health interoperability (addressing core e-Health infrastructure data of patient summary and emergency data set) and launch in 2008 a new European initiative on telemedicine.” (Alternative url for the item.)
