eHealth policy

The Austrian eHealth strategy, published in 2005, puts forth the primary goal of integrated health care and interoperability of information systems, with citizens at the center of documentation and communication. The strategy addresses, among other things, the implementation of an Electronic Health Record, a national e-Card, online access to health information, patients' rights management and standards for system interoperability.
