The stakeholders' Working Group on mHealth assessment guidelines, which the Commission established in February 2016, recently concluded its works. A report, including a few case studies on mHealth, is now available.
While no consensus was reached amongst the represented constituencies on a set of guidelines, the Group allowed for valuable exchanges captured in a report summarising the process and the positions from the represented stakeholders.
mHealth remains an important topic in Commission policy on eHealth, in particular aspects around the validity and reliability of data from mHealth solutions.
The Commission services will therefore be closely associated to the works of the eHealth network subgroup on mHealth (see topic 6 on the agenda), led by Member States representatives, as well as to the mHealth Hub, a very recently launched project funded by the Horizon 2020 programme.
