A very fruitful panel discussion took place on 14th of June within the 8th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region in Berlin. Organised by the BFCC project it proved again that the countries of the Baltic Sea Region are frontrunners for eHealth, esp. Estonia and Sweden. Prof. Wolfgang Hoffmann from the University Medicine Greifswald claimed: “The benefit of eHealth applications should be more communicated to the citizens. In many countries, the citizens themselves have become drivers for eHealth.” The results of the discussion will be considered in the ‘Digital Health Society Declaration’, which will be published during the Estonian EU presidency in the second half of this year. Furthermore, these results will contribute to the sustainability strategy of the BFCC project. The organisational and financial concept will ensure the future of Baltic Fracture Competence Centre beyond the project lifecycle.
