Concept of the ICT for Health Atlas for Benchmarking

The “Concept of the ICT for Health Atlas for Benchmarking, including sustainable running phase” was recently published.
The ICT for Health Atlas is an interactive online system which will provide an overview over the predicted development in eHealth related indicators in the countries of the Baltic Sea Region and can be used for benchmark purposes. Indicators, such as demographics, incidence, mortality and hospital discharges due to chronic diseases, will be presented online. This interactive tool enables citizens, journalists and decision makers to compare eHealth indicators among the countries in the Baltic Sea Area. It will support a continuous discussion on eHealth demands and solutions. It can also be an indicator for the effectiveness of different measures taken in the regions to counteract the impact of the demographic change on the health care systems.
