Uptake of Digital Solutions in Health and Care

Programme: DIGITAL-2021-DEPLOY-01-HEALTH | Grant Agreement Number: 101083929
Duration: 01/11/2022 – 31/10/2024

Scope and objectives

The overall aim of DigitalHealthUptake (DHU) is to facilitate the alignment of policies, strategies, instruments and activities to advance the uptake of digital health solutions and services in Europe. Three objectives underpin this:

  • To monitor and analyse the uptake and use of digital health and care solutions in regions, Member States and associated countries.
  • To create an environment of cooperation and active stakeholder contribution which facilitates regular exchanges between the demand and supply sides to foster cross-border scaling up of digital health solutions and services.
  • To strengthen capacity building for implementation/uptake by identifying and qualifying relevant tools and methods that provide guidance, stimulate mutual learning and transfer of innovative practices between regions, Member States and associated countries and foster adoption, upscaling, large-scale deployment and capacity building.

ECHAlliance role

ECHAlliance will lead the project’s effort (T3.2) to bring together demand and supply, into virtual opportunity spaces that will have either advisory and educational, or marketplace characteristics, aiming to connect ecosystems, so that they can benefit and learn from each other’s diversity and inspire others. As a practical example, ECHAlliance will lead the creation of a Thematic Innovation Ecosystem for the upscale of digital health in rural and remote areas (T3.3). ECHAlliance will also work towards expanding digital health ecosystems, aiming to provide the opportunity for all public and private stakeholders to gather, exchange, learn from each other, and plan future deployments (T.4.4).


The DHU consortium brings together 7 project partners with rich experience in the digital transformation of health and care, representing over 1,300 member organisations. Their substantial outreach brings them in contact with over 80,000 organisations and experts. In addition, the project will be supported by a pool of associated experts who will support initiatives and activities related to the uptake of digital health and care solutions and practices.
