Purpose and legislative framework


The purpose of the creation of the e-Health Law N. 59(I)/2019 is the institutionalization of the framework for the use of eHealth for disease prevention, health promotion and the effective and safe provision of health services to citizens through the establishment of a National eHealth Authority, the implementation of the institution of the Electronic Health Record and the regulation of the storage and use of biomedical information and telemedicine.

The most revolutionary aspect of this approach is the orientation towards health instead of disease.
