The digitisation of healthcare has been on the European agenda to modernise and improve healthcare across the member states. The focus in Europe has switched from developing technology to implementing digital health and ehealth. The digital skills for health professional's (HCPs) committee has surveyed over 200 health professionals. It has discovered no change has resulted in the education of HCPs to prepare them for said implementation. The EU risks spending time and resources on strategies that will have little effect due to the lack of change.
