The objectives are to:
• Gather evidence on the eHealth state-of-the-art and barriers to more rapid exploitation from the perspective of buyers and users in different European countries
• Identify and validate common areas of interest and priority
• Develop a joint statement of current and future unmet needs that require new solutions

WP4 will focus on the supply of eHealth solutions. It will both inform WP4 by highlighting the scale of the technology exploitation gap and allow eHealth stakeholders to respond to the communication on unmet needs.
The objectives are to:
• Gather evidence on the eHealth state-of-the-art and barriers to more rapid exploitation from the perspective of suppliers in different European countries
• Secure market feedback from the supply chain and the wider eHealth innovation community on current and potential solutions to address the unmet needs
• Develop a strategy to address the barriers to more rapid development and uptake of eHealth through demand-side actions such as PPI and PCP projects
