Open Call SC1-HCO-15-2016: EU eHealth Interoperability Conformity Assessment

European CommissionThis coordination and support action (CSA) aims at maintaining and developing the adoption and take-up of testing of eHealth standards and specifications as defined in the eHealth European Interoperability Framework (eEIF). The proposal should aim at the establishment of a sustainable European Conformance Assessment Scheme associated with the maintenance of the eEIF, fostering a wider eHealth interoperability uptake for the entire European market.

The CSA relies on some of the recommendations of the EU funded ANTILOPE project. In particular, the proposal is expected to put in place a conformity scheme which should allow entities to test the capabilities of its healthcare products and related services in any accredited testing laboratory against the requirements of a set of standards and profiles that are recognized and listed in the eHealth EIF. This conformity scheme should ensure consistent testing results across testing laboratories and a suitable corresponding trusted label/certificate should be considered. It is expected that the proposal will bring together a wide range of relevant stakeholders with expertise in the development, implementation, assessment, maintenance and dissemination of such a conformity scheme.

The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of up to EUR 1 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.

Expected Impact:

  • Develop a core eHealth interoperability conformity scheme for the European market based on the eHealth EIF
  • Enable healthcare systems suppliers to assess their conformance to the eHealth EIF and advertise such compliance to procurers
  • Help procurers in their solution specifications and evaluation
  • Facilitate the development and testing of cross-border, national, and regional eHealth projects
  • Setting common criteria for effective benchmarking of different European eHealth implementations

Deadline Date: 16 February 2016 17:00:00 (Brussels local time)

Type of action: CSA Coordination and support action.
