The DirectiveA step in the right direction but still a long way to go...

PGEU

The emphasis on cooperation in the Directive (e.g. European Reference Networks, eHealth, HTA) is a major step forward on the road to a more European approach to health issues and to patients rights. But there is a long way to go, European health systems remain fragmented, and health inequality is a major and growing concern.

PGEU

Why Cooperation Matters for Patients Rights and for Health?

X Health systems are entering a new phase ofgrowing demand and more limited resources the development of best practice and the encouragement of innovation has never been more important,

Y Cooperation is crucial between Member states , butalso at the level of health professionals- as recognised by the provisions of the Directive relating to E Health.

PGEU The potential of eHealth RecordStudy involving 160 French Community Pharmacies that used Dossier Pharmaceutique for 2 months:

577 adverse drug reactions were identified and reportedincluding 482 drug interactions,

In 77% of the interaction cases the pharmacist providedappropriate advice,

16% of the cases the prescriber was contacted, whichlead to a modification in the prescription in at least 1 of 10 interventions,

60 were interventions concerning an oral anticoagulanttreatment.12/04/2011 Pharmacists & Cross-border Healthcare

PGEU Keeping the Patient at the CentreX We must not loose sight of the patient processes such as HTA cooperation must make a robust commitment to consulting with patients and patient organisations,

Y eHealth development must not be dominated by industrialconcerns we need systems which fit for purpose from the patients point of view, and recognise patient autonomy and the key role of consent,

Z We are a long way from a Europeanhealth system, but the Directive is a big step toward a Europeanised health system...12/04/2011 Pharmacists & Cross-border Healthcare
