eHealth Hub Platform - the map of the European digital health ecosystem

The eHealth Hub Platform is a free online catalogue mapping the ecosystem of IT companies, investors and other stakeholders like experts, corporates and business supporters active in the European digital health landscape.

Identifying key players in the ehealth ecosystem is always a challenge. That is why the EU-funded initiative eHealth Hub launched the eHealth Hub Platform.  

The Platform maps different types of European actors active in the ehealth sector: SMEs, investors, healthcare organizations, legal and regulatory service providers, pharmaceutical companies, business supporters. The initiative aimes at enhancing transparency in the sector and enable stakeholders' interaction to promote and accelerate business growth.

"eHealth in Europe still has a long way to go and digital transformation in healthcare must go hands in hands with the collaboration of all actors. The challenge is to know who are those actors and which is the way to collaborate", the eHealth Hub project experts explain.
