ESA: Financing of eHealth in Norway not state aid




On request from Norway, ESA has assessed the financing of the Norwegian system for eHealth. ESA concludes that the financing does not raise state aid issues.

The nationwide electronic services, which are a part of the system for eHealth in Norway, make health services more available, guarantee equal standards for all, make the daily lives of patients easier, and ensure the safety of personal data.

Norway has a health service that is publicly financed and founded on solidarity, and which therefore normally does not raise state aid issues. The eHealth system contributes to the good functioning of this health service and therefore must be assessed in conjunction with it.

ESA thus considers that the eHealth services at issue are not of an economic nature, and that the state aid rules do not apply.
