Abstract

The use of information and communication technologies appears to a main lever to ensure effectiveness and efficiency of modern health care systems. In particular, telemonitoring is one of the most promising concepts in order to enable patients??? self-management, relocate medical services and improve equity in access to high quality care. However, a large-scale adoption of telemonitoring solutions is still barely accomplished all over Europe. Considering the several dimensions of a system???s implementation, this chapter provides insight on the reasons for the slow diffusion of these innovations in the health sector. Subsequently it illustrates how to leverage on these systems and outlines what the different stakeholders need to contribute in order to bridge the gap between pilot projects and diffusion of telemonitoring solutions.
