HITCH for Authorities

Optimal health delivery supported by seamless eHealth system integration obviously helps patients to stay or become healthy. This is of course also in the interest of national authorities since today the health budget of countries are becoming larger and larger, however, never being seen as sufficient at all. Besides this indirect benefit coming from interoperability testing, HITCH will describe quality labelling and certification scenarios for the world of eHealth, thus enabling authorities to establish quality labelling or certification programs, again leading to delivering better health care.
