According to Shaw T, et al., eHealth encompass three main domains: 1) health in hand; referring to being able to access to health information as and when needed, 2) interacting for health; providing multiple ways of communication among providers and consumers, and 3) data enabling health; which covers design and implementation of technologies and healthcare data management cycle.
eHealth is very broad and is a rapidly growing field. It includes a wide range of services and applications, such as Electronic health records (EHRs), Mobile health (mHealth), telehealth and telemedicine, Health informatics and wearable devices. As ICTs become more sophisticated, I think eHealth services and applications have the potential to revolutionize healthcare, the way of healthcare delivery, access, in a near future.
