E-Health

New technologies have the potential to transform healthcare systems. They offer opportunities to improve the efficiency of care delivery, foster patient participation in treatment, allow real-time analysis of chronic disease and make it easier to put the patient first. The use of information technology and mobile, wireless communications and applications for healthcare purposes is called e-health. Whilst e-health offers the potential to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs, it must first be acknowledged as part of treatment regimens by healthcare systems before it can be adopted widely. What’s blocking adoption? Risks related to privacy and cybersecurity, and barriers such as cost of implementation.
