Improving ehealth / [edited by] J.E.W.C. van Gemert-Pijnen, O. Peters, H.C. Ossebaard
- "EHealth is a catalyst for innovating and redesigning health care. The use of information and communication technology in health care creates opportunities for patient-centered care and for the transition of medicine into new models for safe care and self-management. eHealth has the potential to revitalize the fragmented health care system and to make health and well-being achievable for all. A growing body of evidence demonstrates that the benefits of eHealth are gradually being realized in terms of effectiveness, efficacy and satisfaction. Nonetheless, the success for eHealth depends on the maturity of an organization to implement it, and on the adoption by policy makers, health care professionals and patients." -- Preface.
