Electronic systems in healthcare help increase quality, safety and efficiency of healthcare delivery. eHealth enables healthcare workers and providers to maximize their care delivery, and ultimately results in better outcomes for patients, consumers and society.
Healthcare systems require a robust supply of both highly proficient eHealth/IT professionals as well as an overall workforce that has a sufficient level of IT skills to make the optimum use of eHealth. However, there is a global shortage, especially in the European Union, of eHealth workers across the full spectrum of job roles, spanning clinical, social care, informatics, and administration. There is also a dearth of structured eHealth education and training opportunities. The goal of this project has been to address this workforce shortage by: (1.) mapping needs, gaps, and outcome models (2.) providing resources to assess and improve skills (3.) increasing educational and training opportunities (4.) promoting knowledge and development in the field of eHealth.
