This policy brief provides findings from empirical research on market and innovation dynamics regarding Personal Health Systems (PHS) in Europe. Even the already most consolidated of all PHS segments (i.e. RMT) is found to be radically different than the initial assumptions. The research has revealed that the market is in a state far from being mature and as a result there is little standardised data available. RMT contributes only a tiny fraction of the eHealth market revenues. Pilots are still dominating the form of implemented cases. The market is fragmented also in terms of players without distinct segments. This policy brief recognise a huge potential in a modified approach towards evaluation and measurement of eHealth.
