OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
The European Society of Cardiology wants to play a leading role in all aspects of the e-Health agenda, helping to develop, assess and implement effective eHealth innovation to support cardiovascular health.
This includes being part of the conversation at a policy and regulation level as well as supporting healthcare professional directly through education forums and providing eHealth solutions to support clinical practice and CV research.
The ESC has representatives working with the European Commission's Expert groups on eHealth to ensure the interests of cardiovascular healthcare professionals and their patients are represented:
The ESC Cardiovascular Round Table (CRT) is a high level strategic group brings together key stakeholders from across the health sector. On 12 October the CRT brought together academic, health, industry and eHealth experts to discuss emerging trends in eHealth and how the ESC could and should support its members.

In addition to advising and guiding on eHealth matters, the ESC develops eHealth tools to support the delivery of best practice and ongoing medical education to its members and is directly involved in eHealth projects.
The European Union has an e-Health action plan for 2012-2020, which aims “to unlock the promise of e-health to increase efficiency, improve quality of life, and unlock innovation in health markets”. It has identified several barriers to widespread adoption of e-Health, including: limited awareness of, and confidence in, e-health solutions; lack of interoperability; limited large scale evidence of cost-effectiveness; lack of legal clarity and transparency on data utilization; lack of reimbursement; and regional variation in access.
