In 2005, the Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) launched a project which aimed to assess the developments in e-government, e-health and e-learning in the 10 new member states at national and cross-country level. The work regarding Estonia was undertaken by the Institute of Public Administration of Tallinn University of Technology, and involved experts from Praxis.

The report describes Estonian public sector and health care system and the role played by e-government and e-health within this system. The main technical, economic, political, ethical and socio-cultural factors of e-government and e-health developments, as well as the drivers and barriers are also analysed. The results provide further options and challenges for policy makers in Estonia.
