The European Commission approved on 19 April the European e-Government action plan 2016-2020. It is part of the wider package for the digitalization of industries and services, promoted under the Digital Single Market Strategy, announced by President Juncker in Paris in October 2015.

The e-Government action plan aims to speed up the digitalization across all sectors and to boost investments through strategic partnerships and networks, supporting and linking up national initiatives in the following priority areas: 5G, cloud computing, internet of things, data technologies and cybersecurity.
It promotes as well the digital transformation of national governments through the creation of digital single gateways in the fields of justice and healthcare, where citizens and enterprises can get the data they need in a quick and easily accessible way. The building of a cross-border platform for e-prescriptions or patient summaries’ storage can be considered as examples.
