The social capacity, knowledge and acceptance to utilise eHealth technologies of citizens and medical professionals is a basic condition for the implementation and further generation of innovative technologies for the health sector. However the absorption of new knowledge and acceptance to use eHealth technologies is varying remarkably among citizens and medical professionals and needs to be strengthened in all partner regions.

The overall aim of the project is that citizens with chronic diseases and medical professionals in the partner regions have the capacity and knowledge as well as the acceptance to use eHealth technologies in prevention and treatment by the year 2012.

The project analyses the impact of the ageing population on the health care systems and identifies and shares strategies in raising the capacity to utilise eHealth in prevention and treatment of chronic diseases. The findings will be widely disseminated in a Transnational Discussion Round with stakeholders from policy, health sector and industry from the BSR.
The project has three pilot implementations with following main outputs:
A comprehensive self-monitoring system for chronic heart failure patients (WP4), Education content for better utilisation of eHealth by medical professionals and citizens (WP5) and a multi-lingual personal health portal enabling citizens with chronic diseases to document electronically their health data supporting their mobility abroad (WP6). All developed standardised solutions will be transferred and offered to health care providers and the general public in the BSR through a network of distributors and multipliers.
The project partnership is composed of professionals from hospitals, universities, regional administrations for health care planning, municipalities as well as telemedicine experts from the BSR. The project benefits from the eHealth for Regions network and its Political Strategic Board set up during an INTERREG IIIB project for awareness building and dissemination. The eHealth for Regions network activities are run and financed independently from this project proposal.
