Preparing For The Future Direction Of eHealth

What does the future of healthcare look like?

It takes little imagination to see technology integrated into every step of the process. In fact, we add a bit more to it each day. No matter what capacity you enter the system, whether as a patient or as the head of a large medical practice, eHealth is being implemented as:

Electronic Health Records - enables easy communication between different healthcare professionals

Lifetime Health Records - full aggregation of individual electronic health records capturing population-based tracking to both predict and anticipate future events

Telehealth - includes all types of physical and psychological remote monitoring that does not require a patient to travel to see a specialist

Public Health Education - complex media channels that allow citizens to stay informed on a variety of health and medical related topics

Virtual Healthcare Teams - healthcare professionals who collaborate and share information on patients and events

And of course, this is just a start.
