About the eHealth Toolbox Project

We launched this project with the aim of moving away from conceptual efforts to offer a hands-on eHealth assessment toolbox that can be used in practice by the relevant stakeholders in their day-to-day work. It takes into account the gaps and challenges identified in previous initiatives and aims to overcome them, adopting a co-creation methodology with the practice partners and industry experts.

In a practice-oriented style, we created an eHealth assessment toolbox that they can use in their everyday practice, considering the social, organizational, and technical factors of healthcare technology assessment, adoption and implementation.


This project focuses on patient-facing eHealth tools, including self-management tools and remote eHealth solutions, rather than tools used within and between care providers (e.g., HCP video-conferences, or EHR integration), or health data analytics systems used at population level.
