EC announces mHealth Hub project to share best practice

The European Commission announced - through a call for expressions of interest - its mHealth Hub project on 7 August 2017, which aims to bring together best practices in the area of European mobile health, in order that the national experiences of EU Member States are shared, and that Member States are better able to introduce and operate mHealth programs within national health systems.

The four-year Hub project will be funded by Horizon 2020, the EU’s major research and innovation programme, through the ‘Establishing EU mHealth Hub including evidence for the integration of mHealth in the healthcare systems’ action of its 2016-2017 Work Programme. It represents a collaboration between the World Health Organisation (‘WHO’) and the International Telecommunication Union (‘ITU’) in conjunction with their ‘Be Healthy, Be Mobile’ initiative, a collaboration - begun in 2013 - aiming to enable governments to introduce health services for non-communicable diseases and their risk factors via the use of mobile phones to provide information.

The European Commission is now seeking through its call for expressions of interest to find a host for the mHealth Hub, with interested parties having until 29 September 2017 to submit an application in order to be considered.
