eHealth

My morning today started with a tasty cup of coffee and a croissant, while listening to Peteris Zilgalvis, Head of Unit at DG CONNECT. He challenged the audience at the monthly Creative Mornings event to think of more design in ethical issues, especially in areas such as health and well-being. To be honest, I haven’t paid attention to the idea of eHealth until now. Zilgalvis encouraged me to take a closer look at it.

The idea of Telehealth is particularly interesting; namely, Telehealth would allow people in remote areas (think: remote islands and mountains) to fully use medical services remotely. I also loved hearing about EHealthSummary & EPrescription that would allow doctors all over Europe to access patients’ medical history in their own language and to get their prescriptions in other Member States. Let’s educate ourselves on these issues and provide our feedbacks – future of Europe belongs to us, let’s create what we want.
