  • 7. NVEH, the Dutch Association of eHealth, is the main association for e-Health and telemedicine in the Netherlands. Quality in care is central to its mission.
    NVEH was established in February 2005 by doctors.
    From 2008 onwards membership is open for anyone involved in eHealth.
    NVEH represents the Netherlands at the European level in the International Society for Telemedicine & eHealth (ISfTeH).
    The Journal of Telemedicine & Telecare is the official Journal of the Dutch Association of eHealth.
  • 8. De NVEH defines eHealth as:
    The innovative use of ICT, especially Internet, to support and improve health and healthcare.
    In our definition Telehealth, Telemedicine, Telecare, Remote Patient Monitoring etcetera all fall under this eHealth definition.
    For NVEH the quality of care is the main focus area regarding eHealth.eHealth as interpreted by NVEH especially stands for ‘empowerment'. Empowerment of the patient, but also citizens of the caregivers.
    eHealth is primarily about Health (supported by ICT where applicable)
