How can we define e-health in the academic environment?
This 2001 article by Gunther Eysenbach, editor of JMIR (Journal of Medical Internet Research), discusses and defines the term "e-health" as:
E-health is a broad concept used in the general sense to refer to the implementation of information and communication technology(ies) in healthcare. This includes the electronic health record (EHR), as well as technologies such as telehealth and mobile apps for health (mHealth). This definition encompasses the use of the Internet in delivering or improving healthcare, as well as the implementation of technologies such as databases, machine learning, clinical decision support, et cetera.
