A Patients Charter for eHealth (revised version 2008)

The recently revised EHTEL Patients Charter for eHealth Information Systems highlights the necessary ingredients to ensure full patient empowerment in relation to how eHealth affects their treatment and health promotion cycles. The Charter marks the culmination of four years’ work within the EHTEL patients’ group. It calls on national healthcare authorities across the European Union, particularly to adopt a patient centred approach to formalising and harmonising guidelines related to the use of eHealth systems and the processing of electronic health records. The Patients Charter for eHealth has been prepared and revised by the Patients’ and Citizens Working Group of the European Health Telematics Association (EHTEL) in collaboration with various European Patients' Organisations.
