REHEALTH2 / Re-Health2: Implementation of the Personal Health Record as a tool for integration of refugees in EU health systems

Migration and Demography

The Re-Health2 project, has the overall objective to contribute to the integration of newly-arrived migrants and refugees, including those to be relocated, in the EU Member States’ health systems through the utilization of the PHR/e-PHR - a universal EU tool for health assessments that aims at improving the continuity of care, making medical records available to health professionals within and from reception to destination countries, and facilitating data collection to better understand and meet migrants’ and refugees’ health needs as also through supporting and fostering use of and capacity-building of health mediators. Ultimately, the project will contribute to the EU Digital Strategy by demonstrating the feasibility and limitations of such a system, which then can, if positive, be further up taken /taken in to consideration by e-(Health) EU related entities.
