Norway started with eHealth and telemedicine many years ago back in the nineties. Almost every GP has had an electronic medical record for the last 20 years. In 1997 we got the first action plan for e-health and this plan has been followed up every 2and year with new action plans.  The Government is committed to eHealth and we will introduce many new services both for the health sector and for the citizens in the coming years.
