Resumé

In order to realise the potential benefits of eHealth, governments develop eHealth policies to define and prioritise initiatives, the strategic goals and the resulting benefits. During the 23 years with eHealth policies in Denmark only a few status reports with a systematic and transparent evaluation have been made. This paper advocates a more systematic approach to strategic planning of development and implementation of eHealth systems, by encouraging the concept of evidence-based policy making through analysis of how focus of the Danish eHealth policies have evolved. The Danish eHealth policies have very different framings following the different focus points for the policies. Interestingly, strategies for evaluating the devolopment of eHealth and eHealth policies were very sparcely noted in the policies. For the first time the de-emphasising of evaluations of eHealth policies in Denmark has been empirically demonstrated, thus undermining the objective of obtaining evidence-based eHealth policies.
