Defining eHealth

eHealth is the intersection between the delivery of information, resources and research in public and private health by business, government and/or individuals. Such delivery is by internet or related, new technologies.

Eysenbach goes on to note that this is not merely a technical achievement, but also a state of mind and commitment to networked, global thinking ‘to improve health care locally, regionally and worldwide by using information and communication technology (ICT).’
