Internet technology helps improve the quality of healthcare in many ways. Health data from different locations can be collected and analyzed, and the processed health information could be disseminated to front-line health workers timely to be aware of irregular disease patterns and to identify gaps and challenges in service accessibility. Officers from the central level to local healthcare providers can gather online to participate in a workshop or meeting to have meaningful discussions on promoting the healthcare system and overcoming the challenges.
There are many challenges to using the Internet in healthcare in my country. The primary concern is that the Internet is not accessible in remote areas of the country. Healthcare providers gather health data with paper-based collection systems in some hard-to-reach areas. The resources such as electronic devices are limited and the capacity of healthcare workers which are required to be enhanced to use electronic healthcare information system properly through the internet.
