This publication provides health ministers and the health public sector in general with validated information on which key implementation decisions concerning e-Health may be made. An import issue discussed here is the reinforcement of the implementation and deployment of e-Health systems by European health service providers. Here, e-Health systems and services are looked at from a user perspective; the citizen, the patient, the healthcare professional, the hospital manager and the pubic health authority. 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.
