From my understanding, eHealth is to utilize technologies to enhance the efficacy, effectiveness, and efficiency of healthcare to be better. An eHealth project could be classified into or incorporated with three domains, including health monitor, communication, and data sources. The eHealth project is possibly implemented as a health assistant to help users track physical activities and remind them of medicine intake or doctor appointments, to stay healthy and active. Additionally, the eHealth project could be established as a communicator for health follow-up, consultation, and information exchange between patients, doctors, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers remotely. The eHealth project could also be a digital recorder collecting health information, such as medical records, doctor visits, test results, and prescriptions, which could be accessed real-time and remotely by authorized persons to support best practices and guidelines of medical decision-making.
