The primary objective of the consultation was to collect comments on the barriers and issues related to the use of mHealth that will help identifying the way forward to unlock the potential of mobile health in the EU. On the basis of the responses to this consultation, the Commission may take steps to support the implementation of mHealth in the EU, to be announced in 2015.
The mHealth consultation, which closed on the 3 July 2014, was not confined to mobile phone applications, but included all patient monitoring devices and other wireless devices. The objective of the Public Consultation was to invite interested parties to submit their specific comments, suggestions, explanations or contributions on relevant aspects related to future EU action in the domain of mHealth.
The results of the consultation and the feedback report will be issued in the fourth quarter of 2014.
