In particular, the EKTG and its international ambassadors endeavour to

 

  • promote patients as active, well-informed and responsible participants in the health care system

  • find new solutions to provide assistance to and ensure a good quality of life for patients and senior citizens

  • create awareness on IT related solutions and cybersecurity, pertinent to Health & Wellbeing environments

  • identify and recommend best practice examples on eHealth related subjects

  • identify and create educational content and guidelines on eHealth related subjects

  • actively participate in European fora on eHealth to ensure European-wide harmonisation

  • promote excellence and to enhance and support research, policy formation, education and entrepreneurship and other activities that advance and enrich eHealth in all its forms

  • promote innovation and practical solutions in AAL and eHealth

The digitalisation of health can strongly increase the quality of life of patients and senior citizens, but they need support. The EKTG and its international ambassadors work towards better education of healthcare users and the successful implementation of AAL and eHealth solutions.
