    MOMENTUM has, at its heart, building a European momentum for telemedicine to ensure the provision of high quality routine care for its people. Stakeholders will be closely involved. The MOMENTUM Thematic Network will develop a European Union-wide multi-stakeholder platform. At the core of the platform are the practitioners of telemedicine – those involved with its day-to-day delivery. Its wider community includes stakeholder groups, other actors and the broader public. MOMENTUM has a core set of objectives. It is about creating a platform across which the key players can share their knowledge and experience in deploying telemedicine services into routine care so as to build a body of good practice. Working together, they will define a Blueprint that validates a consolidated set of methods supporting the telemedicine service implementation process.


    MOMENTUM’s outcome will be a vibrant and sustainable network of telemedicine stakeholders.
    Their responsibilities are to develop and maintain a European Telemedicine Deployment Blueprint that will
    achieve three results.
    • It will assist countries and telemedicine practitioners in their telemedicine implementations, and validate the
    work of past initiatives.
    • It will document the roadblocks – the lack of robust methods to support the telemedicine implementation
    process is perceived as one of them – that obstruct telemedicine implementation in daily practice.
    • It will propose a set of policy recommendations: these will help to create the enabling environments needed to
    accelerate overall telemedicine deployment in Europe.
    It will be a core tool: it will be fundamental to assessing the legal and organisational issues to be addressed in
    mainstreaming telemedicine at European, regional and local levels. Hence, it will deal with base-line legislation
    through to local practice guidelines.
    MOMENTUM’s ultimate goal is turn telemedicine into a sustainable mechanism.
