Patient empowerment has become an element of high priority in the EU health strategy, supported by national and regional health authorities.Building on already existing e-health platforms and services in the participating regions, the PALANTE project focuses on the implementation, scaling up and optimisation of 7 demonstration pilots based on the concept of secure and user friendly online access by citizens to their medical/health data. The main goal of this proposal is to empower patients so they will be able to make informed decisions about their health, take an active role in their care and collaborate effectively with their healthcare team thanks to the use of information and communication technologies.The PALANTE Project considers 7 new pilots in 6 countries (7 regions) and 2 additional on-going pilots in 2 other countries.
