Abstract:
The widespread use of consumer-oriented information communication technologies (ICTs) such as cell phones, iPods and other electronic data devices is changing the way consumers think about and interact with healthcare. In light of this technology boom, a new field for researching, planning and implementing ICTs in healthcare has emerged called ‘eHealth’. Effective eHealth implementation requires a patient-centred approach to care, with health professionals utilising technology to share clinical information and guide patient self-care. This may include the use of electronic health records (EHRs), phone and text messaging interactions and web-based communication applications. Anticipated benefits of eHealth are improved patient access and choice, enhanced communication between professionals and improved health outcomes. However, the introduction of ICTs to the complex healthcare environment may also lead to disruptions, distractions or errors. To implement eHealth in a safe and effective way, the development of a comprehensive agenda for research, planning and implementation is essential.
