  • whether national eHealth policies, strategies, roadmaps and/or implementation measures exist and have been updated
  • whether and to what extent the objectives defined in the European eHealth Action plan have been incorporated into them
  • what progress has been achieved, focusing on eHealth Action Plan priorities
