MOMENTUM has, at its heart, building a European momentum for telemedicine to ensure the provision of high quality routine care for its people.
Stakeholders will be closely involved. The MOMENTUM Thematic Network will develop a European Union-wide multi-stakeholder platform. At the core of the platform are the “Doers” of telemedicine – those involved with its day-to-day delivery. Its wider community includes stakeholder groups, other actors and the broader public.
MOMENTUM has a core set of objectives. It is about creating a platform across which the key players can share their knowledge and experience in deploying telemedicine services into routine care so as to build a body of good practice. Working together, they will define a Blueprint that validates a consolidated set of methods supporting the telemedicine service implementation process.
Results count. MOMENTUM's outcome will be a vibrant and sustainable network of telemedicine stakeholders. Their responsibilities are to develop and maintain a European Telemedicine Deployment Blueprint that will achieve three results. • It will assist countries and telemedicine “Doers” in their telemedicine implementations, and validate the work of past initiatives. • It will document the roadblocks – the lack of robust methods to support the telemedicine implementation process is perceived as one of them – that obstruct telemedicine implementation in daily practice. • It will propose a set of policy recommendations: these will help to create the enabling environments needed to accelerate overall telemedicine deployment in Europe.
It will be a core tool: it will be fundamental to assessing the legal and organisational issues to be addressed in mainstreaming telemedicine at European, regional and local levels. MOMENTUM's ultimate goal is turn telemedicine into a sustainable mechanism.
