Today, the eHealthMonitor is being launched in the context of the eHealth Plan 2019-2021. The eHealthMonitor is an annual survey conducted into knowledge about and use of eHealth applications in the Belgian health sector, with emphasis placed along the following lines:
- Availability of eHealth applications
- Use of eHealth applications
- Developments in the use of eHealth applications
- Expectations from eHealth applications
Ultimately, the aim of the eHealthMonitor is to provide a closer and better insight into the capabilities and challenges of eHealth applications.

Care provider or care consumer
The aim of the survey is to highlight the way eHealth applications are used, both by care providers and care consumers.
For care providers, this research is aimed in particular at:
- doctors (GPs and specialists)
- nurses and carers
A care consumer is anyone who has been in contact with a doctor or other care provider. Which means that just about everyone is welcome to join in!
This research will be carried out by imec on behalf of the National Institute for Health and Disability Insurance (RIZIV/INAMI) and in conjunction with the Federal Public Service Public Health and the regional governments.
