In my PhD research in the eHealth Junior project I am aiming to understand and overcome the technological, legal and financial barriers that threaten a successful implementation of eHealth applications, as for example legal issues, new EU regulations on medical devices (MDR), and privacy (GDPR). Based on the output, I will develop a comprehensive roadmap for eHealth developers, researchers, and business- and legal stakeholders, which describes essential steps in eHealth development and implementation for chronically ill children. Additionally, I will co-develop the eHealth Junior platform and create a business model for sustainable usage of the platform in (clinical) practice.
