The paramount objective of the "Chain of Trust" project is to advance the empowerment of patients, health professionals and national health authorities across the EU in their understanding and effective use of telehealth services in an effort to actively contribute to the vision of high quality, patient-centred, equitable healthcare for all EU patients.
Through a series of focused and well defined actions the project will strengthen significantly the levels of awareness and trust for all key stakeholders.
To this end two specific objectives have been identified:
1. Knowledge gathering. To improve available knowledge of the specific views – needs, perceptions on the added value and concerns - among patients and health professionals with regard to telehealth services;
2. Rasing awareness and understanding. To increase awareness and understanding of users` perspective on telehealth amongst patients` and health professionals` organisations and health authorities at European and Member State level.
