ECONOMIC PERSPECTIVES

 

 

 

 

Abstract.The aim of this research is to describe and compare the Internet connectivity and the use of eHealth solutions in the selected EU countries. Possible reasons for the differences in the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) in different economic conditions are identified. This paper focused on the benchmarks applicable in Polish healthcare system in relation to other non-health related activities where ICT use is much broader and in majority is based on secondary

data taken from the reports conducted by Polish, European, and global institutions, as well as the databases of Eurostat and Central Statistical Office of Poland. The use of ICT in healthcare differs among the analyzed countries. Estonia’s example indicates that the development of highly effective IT solutions is achievable. There is a need for further studies to monitor and optimize application of IT solutions for the healthcare system in Poland.
