Working to Develop a Skilled eHealth Workforce

For more information please go to
We are coordinating the EU*US eHealth Workforce Development Project under the Horizon 2020 program funded by the European Commission.

Mapping skills and competencies; providing access to knowledge, tools and platforms; strengthening, disseminating and exploiting success outcomes for a skilled transatlantic eHealth workforce
The overall goal of the EU*US eHealth Workforce Project is to measure, inform, educate and advance eHealth and health information technology skills, work and workforce development throughout Europe, the United States and globally.

  • We will execute the tasks of measurement through an overall goal of mapping, quantifying and projecting the need, supply and demand for workforce skills and competences.

  • We will inform new and incumbent eHealth workforce members, pertinent actors, stakeholders and others in the health information and technology field regarding the results of our measurements.

  • We will educate by utilising results to build a set of foundational curricula, enhance the HITCOMP Tool and Repository, and build an interactive web platform usable by students, new and incumbent healthcare workers and practitioners, educators, governments and industry.

  • We will advance the field of eHealth/health IT and further enhance workforce building initiatives by disseminating and exploiting the work generated under this project. We will utilise our "network of networks" in a perpetually evolving process of information, resource and tool development.
