eHealth Solutions for the Integrated Healthcare


Information and communication technologies (ICT) bring a new dimension into the different areas of healthcare by using electronic media and new methodologies. Electronic supported health (eHealth) has the ability to bridge gaps and overcome barriers in a different way from traditional forms of healthcare. Telemedicine is the most attractive and visible application field. The advances in healthcare and ICT serve the populations (human beings, patients, and healthcare professionals) and the sustainability of healthcare systems. New health IT systems offer opportunities to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of healthcare services through innovative approaches in clinical service delivery, personal health, and public health, with wide impacts on the wellbeing of both individuals and populations. The use of telemedicine especially for consultation and monitoring has recently undergone rapid growth and proliferation, although the feasibility of many applications, policies, and data concerning the costs, effects, and effectiveness of eHealth and telemedicine are limited.

We invite researchers to contribute original research articles as well as review or methodological articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to promote use of ICT services or bridge gaps and overcome barriers.
