Question for written answer E-003325-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Rolandas Paksas (EFDD)

 Subject:  eHealth plan
 Answer in writing 

Non-communicable diseases (diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic respiratory and mental health disorders) are on the rise in Europe. About 70‐80% of healthcare spending goes on the treatment of chronic diseases, while a very small amount of spending (about 3%) is allocated to the prevention of these diseases. The creation of a digital healthcare platform is necessary to ensure a more effective distribution of resources for the benefit of users, for example, to develop informative applications providing parents with information on how to detect and control their children’s obesity and mental health disorders.

Are there any effective measures which the Commission will apply to promote the use of information technologies to prevent and treat non-communicable diseases?

Has the Commission produced, and is it ready to present, a report on the successful implementation of an eHealth action plan in Member States: Are the currently available technologies and innovations sufficient for the plan to be implemented?

What funding is intended to be allocated to Member States to implement the eHealth action plan?
