Abstract [en]

It is crucial to involve the patient in the development of patient accessible eHealth systems. But who, how and when? Patient involvement in development of e-health services for citizens has gained little attention to date. It is important to highlight the experiences, pros and cons, and explore new issues and future challenges that arise for all different stakeholders involved in e-health development.

One source of inspiration for this workshop is the European funded SUSTAINS project which aims to deploy e-health services with the patient as an important actor. Another is the Swedish research project My Care Pathways where focus is on development of new e-health services that enable the patient to follow and interact with their care processes.

This workshop aims to discuss the experiences made in ongoing European deployment projects of online e-health services as well as methods to improve patient participation in such development based on current evaluations and future needs.

The objective is to collect and disseminate various experiences from novel e-health service deployment in Europe; during the workshop active participation is desired via twitter and other eLearning tools, and afterwards the results of the workshop are published on easily accessible web sites.
