Abstract

As the information society is becoming more concrete in EU member states, the challenge is to synchronise the rapid development of information technology with the changing market of health care and medicine itself. The rapid changes that have taken place in the field of informatics, have also an important knock-on effect in the health sector. However, pure technology is not sufficient, the acceptability of healthcare policy makers and end-users is of utmost importance. As citizen's aspect is becoming more and more crucial, the whole area of health care service providers is migrating to a new position, where qualified, managed and seamless care is the ultimate goal of health care strategy taking into account the general trends like ageing and integration needs of systems.
