The Momentum Thematic Network is a platform across which the key European players share their knowledge and experience in deploying telemedicine services into routine care with the goal to build a body of good practice.

The Momentum partners will work together to define a Blueprint that validates a consolidated set of methods supporting the telemedicine service implementation process.
The consortium conceives of a Blueprint as a holistic European reference framework for telemedicine deployment.

Momentum’s outcome will be a vibrant and sustainable network of telemedicine stakeholders. Their responsibilities are to develop and maintain a European Telemedicine Deployment Blueprint that will achieve three results:

  • It will assist countries and telemedicine practitioners in their telemedicine implementations, and validate the work of past initiatives.
  • It will document the roadblocks – the lack of robust methods to support the telemedicine implementation process is perceived as one of them that obstruct telemedicine implementation in daily practice.
  • It will propose a set of policy recommendations: these will help to create the enabling environments needed to accelerate overall telemedicine deployment in Europe.


Momentum is an open network and will be expanded from its initial partnership to a broader forum, bringing together health authorities, professional international and national stakeholder groups, and networks of professionals and patients.
Momentum’s ultimate goal is turn telemedicine into a sustainable mechanism.
A permanent forum is needed to address emerging challenges in the spread of telemedicine, and ensure that any underpinning framework becomes the foundation of a telemedicine quality management system.

The Momentum thematic network will run from February 2012 to July 2014.
The Region of Southern Denmark and OUH will be leading the work package called: “Knowledge Gathering & consolidation” and will contribute to the other work packages and knowledge sharing activities of the project.

The Region of Southern Denmark is represented by the Unit for Clinical Innovation at Odense University Hospital in the project. Questions regarding the project can be sent to Claus Duedal Pedersen, Head of Unit, at claus.duedal.pedersen@rsyd.dk
