In this book you can find exciting examples and best practices of e-Health solutions and description of past and present activities of European Commission in the area of e-Health. e-Health research is now bearing fruit and the European market is experiencing a growth in e-Health products and services. E-Health solutions are not only key tools of our current healthcare delivery systems, but they form the backbone of the modern citizen-centred systems towards which all European countries are now striving. While e-Health is still a growing research and development field, there are many mature results in the domain that can be used immediately as crucial instruments by healthcare authorities, professionals, patients, and citizens. In general, the proper use of information and communication technologies for data collection, processing and transfer, is the corner stone of productivity gain and re-engineering of all sectors that use large amounts of information and data. Health is an information-intensive sector. The potential benefit of a fully integrated information and communication technologies-based re-organisation is significant, since it will enable not only more efficiency in information processing but also impact beneficially on access and quality of care.
