European eHealth Network

The Joint Action to support the eHealth Network (JAseHN) was launched in 2015 and is now in the process of setting up a cross-border network to exchange Patient Summaries and ePrescriptions, by focusing on the following objectives:

  • enable seamless cross-border care and secure access to patient health information between European healthcare systems, particularly with respect to the exchange of Patient Summary and ePrescription.
  • contribute to patient safety by reducing the frequency of medical errors and by providing quick access to patient health information, as well as by increasing the accessibility of a patient’s own prescriptions, also when abroad.
  • provide medical personnel with life-saving information in emergency situations and reduce the repetition of diagnostic procedures.
