• points out that competence for organising and providing healthcare services rests with the Member States and their local and regional authorities. The latter have a key role in the development of health care and in its digitisation by means of eHealth and mHealth;
• stresses that mHealth is a key factor in efforts to empower the public and to put them in a better position to gain control over their own health. Particularly for older people and people with disabilities or chronic illnesses, mHealth can make a significant contribution to improving their safety and independence in daily life;
• highlights that expanding digitisation and increasing levels of health-related knowledge may help to give more people in remote, sparsely populated or otherwise disadvantaged regions access to high-quality information and preventative healthcare measures, as well as to easily accessible medical treatment and follow-up;
• notes that mHealth and eHealth are high on the agenda for many of Europe's local and regional authorities, but that progress in development varies between countries and regions. There is a need for more interregional cooperation and exchanges of practical and policy experience, to enable those at the forefront of mHealth to transfer their knowledge;
