Executive Summary


This deliverable describes eHealth and the use of (health data from) electronic health records and cards in several states in Europe. After an introductory chapter, in which we set the scope and perspective of the study, we present a descriptive analysis of the field. This overview is based on the answers to a question list that the partners of this deliverable received. Issues which are addressed are patient identifiers, access to medical data, the use of medical data for profiling purposes etc. In a following chapter we discuss the results in the light of current development in health care (delivery) systems in welfare states in Europe. Finally, we present some topics relevant to the agenda for future research in the field. We call attention to the fact that further in-depth comparative analyses of social shaping of technology in health care - with a particular attention on profiling -  is needed.
