WHO makes legal and policy recommendations for eHealth

April 2016, eHealth Law & Policy

Philippe Bradley-Schmieg is quoted in this eHealth & Policy Law article regarding WHO’s report on key eHealth trends and progress across Europe. According to Bradley-Schmieg, “The call for ‘detailed’ EHR [electronic health record] laws is questionable. German and French EHR laws have simply added to already tough and complicated legal environments, with unimpressive results over the past decade. Countries like Poland and Belgium have instead focused on removing blockers in existing laws. For example, in 2014 Belgium changed a law to say that patient records have to be maintained ‘by’ a hospital, not ‘in’ a hospital, unlocking the use of key eHealth technologies.”
