About JAseHN

Project description

The major objective of this Project is to act as the main preparatory body for the eHealth Network according to the multi-annual work plan 2015-2018 and as such to focus on the elaboration of Deliverables that shall be submitted to the eHealth Network prior to their bi-annual meetings. The Project aims to develop political recommendations and instruments for cooperation in the four specific priority areas that are specified in the eHealth Network’s multi-annual work plan 2015-2018 and that were adopted by the eHealth Network in May 2014: a) interoperability and standardisation, b) monitoring and assessment of implementation, c) exchange of knowledge and d) global cooperation and positioning.

JAseHN is a joint action mechanism that is led by the Member States (MS) and co-financed by the European Commission (EC). It was set up by the EC through a call for proposals: the MS were invited to nominate their national competent authorities and/or their agencies that are nationally responsible for eHealth to participate as associated or collaborating partners. EU eHealth stakeholders and standardization organizations are integrated through a separate dedicated stakeholder liaison mechanism. JAseHN is based on eight work packages, with the content-related work packages representing the four priority areas as defined in the Multiannual Work Plan (MWP). Its work is divided into a number of tasks. Documents and decisions intended for submission to the eHN are channelled through the strategic project steering committee, where all associated and collaborating partners are represented.
