Health

Contemporary life imposes a set of challenges on health policy decision-makers as well as health professionals such as ageing population in Europe and overpopulation in developing countries, changing patterns of diseases, impacts of climate change, pandemics, bioterrorism. Equally, the digitalisation of healthcare opens new horizons as far as innovation is concerned in ICT, genomics, biotechnology and nanotechnology, yet evokes new issues such as safety, ethics, sustainability and equity. Digitalization resulted in a rapid change not only in terms of the behaviour of healthcare providers, but also patients. It puts patients and the promotion of personalised medicine into the centre while bringing about new ways of engagement with patients. One of its remarkable advantages is the reduction of bureaucracy and administrative duties that can take time away from personalized care, yet public healthcare institutions need to handle an increasing number of accurate, personalised data and breeches of data security. Digitalization impels the reorganization of business processes and up-dating healthcare infrastructure as well as a modernizing the ways of co-operation with healthcare institutions at different governance levels with each-other, the channels and standards to communicate with patients.

E-governance

Governments make huge efforts to enhance the function of public administration and its relationship to the public. E-government has often been driven by ICT solutions instead of user demand. However, it goes beyond putting information online to the public. It requires conscious strategies and policies covering several issues such as:

  • making e-services more in tune with citizens’ needs and businesses;
    ensuring universal access;
  • identification of common processes within governments in order to achieve economies of scale, reduce duplication and provide seamless services;
  • measuring and demonstrating the costs and benefits of ICT investments to better manage e-governance;
  • E-government co-ordination: expand e-governance in as many policy areas as possible with a view to existing structures and cultures of government institutions.
