In this paper, we present one of the key KONFIDO project’s activities, the identification of key barriers and facilitators regarding eHealth solutions acceptance, focusing on security and interoperability. The methodology presented includes an end-user survey and an end-user workshop, engaging various stakeholders from Europe, in order to gain value out of their experience and insight in real-world healthcare settings. The analysis of the results provides a list of explicitly identified barriers and facilitators of adopting eHealth solutions in a Europe- wide scale, useful in the context of KONFIDO and beyond.
