Krijgsman, J., Peeters, J., Burghouts, A., Brabers, A., Jong, J. de, Moll, T., Friele, R., Gennip, L. van, NIVEL, Nictiz. Between the spark and the flame: 2015 eHealth monitor. Utrecht/Den Haag: NIVEL, Nictiz, 2015.
Dutch healthcare is hard at work on eHealth, as we can see in this third edition of the eHealth monitor. Over one third of general practitioners, over half of medical specialists and two thirds of psychiatrists state that pilots have been run with an eHealth application in their practice or healthcare centre in the past year (see ‘Pilots’). What is striking is that in over 70% of cases, use of the eHealth application was continued after the trial period as well. Nevertheless, the results of all these local efforts are not yet visible on a country-wide level.
