To prepare for the large scale deployment of eHealth services under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), this workshop will explore different business models supporting European-wide eHealth services. This requires to also examine the need for ensuring cross-border connectivity, i.e. to consider all layers of interoperability (functional, semantic and technical) in order to facilitate such services. Discussions will start from the Smart Open Services for European Patients (epSOS) experience and explore future opportunities to build on this.
In order to enable cross-organisational & cross-border information flows for further clinical needs/scenarios such as chronic disease management (e.g. a chronic disease tailored summary) being addressed by SemanticHealthNet.
Business Modelling (BM) will explore issues such as:
- Type of cross-border services to be deployed, and their drivers
- Drivers for cross-organisational interoperability and shared care services
- Identification of value propositions for each stakeholder groups such as private and public actors (EU, Member States, regions, local authorities, insurance companies, patients/citizens, healthcare providers, industry, etc.)
- Financing models including pricing and revenue models
Special attention will be given to the maintenance of the required infra- and info-structure (incl. subsets of terminologies, multilingual semantic assets, terminology servers, technical specifications, open source components, national reference/contact points, quality requirements of EHR).
