Project activities

X-eHealth is composed of 8 work package (WP).


4 WP exclusively focus on technical-functional activities (WP4 to WP7). From Generic Aspects to System Architecture and Integration, passing by Functional and Technical Specifications, X-eHealth objective is to move towards a uniform interoperable data-sharing format framework. In addition, to enhance EU’s public health state of play, WP1 and WP8 are responsible for implementation studies, practicality and continuity of eHealth interoperability development.

In summary, the focuses of the Work Packages are as follows:

WP1. Project Coordination and Sustainability.

  • Project management, quality control and risk management
  • Project administrative and financial management.
  • Roadmap of new domains and sustainability plan
  • Mapping national challenges for EEHRxF adoption

WP2. Dissemination, Communication & Stakeholders Engagement

  • Healthcare providers, Health professionals and Citizens motivation
  • National Authorities involvement
  • Industries, researchers and developers’ liaison
  • “X-Hospitals” – Hospital Network for the exploration of the EEHRxF

WP3. Evaluation

  • Continuous Evaluation and Monitoring

WP4. Generic Aspects of EEHRxF recommendation
