e-Health is a relatively recent term for healthcare practice supported by electronic processes and communication, dating back to at least 1999.
Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are helping you, your doctor(s), your pharmacist and your hospital take better care of your health.
Thanks to eHealth, doctors can access patients’ medical records more easily, get immediate access to test results from the laboratory, and deliver prescriptions directly to pharmacists.
e-Health will enable access to the best available information so that everyone benefits.
- People are able to make decisions about their health and wellness.
- Providers have the right information at the right time.
- The health system is managed safely, effectively and efficiently.
