The future of mobile eHealth inEurope
The MovingLife project is a Coordination and Support Action that will deliver roadmaps for technological research, implementation practice and policy support with the aim of accelerating the establishment, acceptance and wide use of mobile eHealth solutions.
With a view to the holistic approach and the need to incorporate a range of policy areas in the roadmaps, the project first developed three thematic roadmaps and identified the different relationships between related areas using vision scenarios, gap analysis and a stakeholder consultation process.

These three thematic roadmaps aimed at clustering related topics contained in the future vision of mHealth as follows:
- Roadmap for technology and application research: addresses technology options for applications and services, wearable devices and BAN/PAN networks, seamless mobile communication and interoperability standards, need for dedicated radio frequency bands for continuous provision of care, security and privacy enhancing technologies, etc.
- Roadmap for medical uptake: focuses on any need for update of clinical and medical guidelines; new care models, evolution of care spaces; methodology to deliver new knowledge to medical professionals and patients, risk management, patient-doctor relationships, joint and shared care, etc.
- Roadmap for socio-economic and policy frameworks: identifies socio-economic and policy drivers and inhibitors for massive deployment of mHealth related to user acceptance, ethical issues, security, privacy and trust models, cross-border issues, business cases; reimbursement models, mapping of future mHealth applications to the regulatory framework of medical devices, etc.
