Nav 07/1 Improved Collaboration
[standard edition] "Improved Collaboration - A Challenge for Healthcare and an opportunity for eHealth": Besides providing background information for the eHealth Conference 2007 in Berlin this edition of the EHTEL Navigator highlights the subject of interprofessional communication and collaboration in the support of continuity of care - of course in the framework of eHealth.
A crucial question is: Do we use eHealth only for "Connecting Systems" or do we achieve to "Connect People"? Please read the statements of a recognised expert, Angelo Rossi Mori, who describes an upcoming "Copernican Revolution" for eHealth (the old geo-centric view is equivalent to a techno-centric eHealth approach), which has to be overcome. The EHTEL Navigator provides also some answers to this challenge, which have been provided by major European stakeholder organisations of health professionals.
