Important areas in need of development

Capacity and secure function

eHealth solutions may require specifications in the connection which cannot normally be guaranteed when using a general Internet operator. Transferring big files from CT, MRI or PET will require good bandwidth across the whole connection, all the way from transmitter to receiver. In certain applications it may be critical that a certain period of up-time is required. Real-time applications like voice, video or robot actions over the net need certain standards on packet loss and delay. To avoid thresholds for development of transnational eHealth solutions, it will be necessary to create a dedicated European health net where all requirements can easily be ordered for respective eHealth application.
