Regional Innovation in Central European Countries

The use of technology and Internet connectivity provides new methods for utilising and improving public health services. For example, genomic based medicine and eHealth can be used to provide treatment to patients without the need to travel to a doctor; to educate health professionals through online learning; to track diseases and epidemic outbreaks; to facilitate health promotion initiatives; and to support public health.

eHealth is one of the fastest growing sectors in the healthcare market and can be used at local, national, regional and global levels to promote and strengthen health systems and health information.

The use of electronic processes in health encourages the efficient use of resources, reducing costs, increasing the speed of delivery, saving time, preventing the overuse of or dangerous interactions in medications, reducing travel and removing the need for a physical space to treat every patient.
