eHealth Innovation partner HCP’s (Health Consumer Powerhouse) EHCI is leading measurement of national healthcare systems

The Euro Health Consumer Index measurements started in 2005. Since then the European Commission has paid growing interest in this benchmark. During 2013 HCP has been alerted that the Commission has assessed available systems for healthcare comparison including WHO, OECD, European Observatory and so forth and concluded that the EHCI is most reliable one. This was publicly confirmed on November 28:

"We know the Euro Health Consumer Index (EHCI) is today the leading public measurement of how national healthcare systems perform in 35 European countries and is the most extensive Index yet. We have recently learned that the European Commission after assessing various benchmarks has found the EHCI to be the most accurate and reliable comparison."

Quote from Dr. Vytenis Andriukaitis, Lithuanian Minister of Health, at the presentation of this year's Euro Health Consumer Index in Brussels on Nov 28. Lithuania holds the presidency of the European Union during the second half of 2013. Read Dr. Andriukaitis' speech here.
