Last June 4th took place in Lisbon the “Electronic Public Administration – What needs to be done?” conference, where Professor Henrique Martins, CEO of SPMS – Portuguese Ministry of Health, Shared Services talked about Health in Public Administration and how Health in Portugal is fitting in these context.

  • Time consumption and several challenges that usually occur in an eHealth Information System
  • Difficulties during the creation of any IS with the Portuguese Data Protection Authority
  • Evolution process
  • eHealth Information Systems at an European level (e.g. epSOS)
