EU Telehealth Code

Newham has been a test site for the development of the EU Telehealth Code since the first draft was released in April 2012 and has provided ongoing feedback into its development.

Introduction to the Code

The lead developers of the code have been Dr Malcolm J Fisk and Roberts Roze of the Health Design and Technology Institute of Coventry University. The initiative has been funded by the EU and has twelve partners in Belgium, Bulgaria, Eire, Hungary, Italy, Slovenia and the UK.

The final version of the Code was launched at the European Telemedicine Conference in Edinburgh on 29th October 2013. The European Code of Practice for Telehealth Services provides a robust quality benchmark. It is for all countries of the European Union and fits closely with the direction set by the European Commission’s eHealth Action Plan 2012‐2020.
