An import issue discussed here is the reinforcement of the implementation and deployment of e-Health systems by European health service providers.

This volume consists of the following sections: National and Regional Health Information Networks; e-Health systems and services for Health professionals, Empowering Patients and Citizens in management for the Public Health, and Industrial and standardization Issues.
