Purpose

E-health encompasses a broad area of IT-based solution for the healthcare industry. The investments related to e-health are often huge (many countries spend over Billions each year). E-health can have a huge impact of the health of people and the way that healthcare processes are handled.  

Many projects, pilots, tests, etc are done throughout the world. Some with great success, some with less. Some that are stopped halfway, some bring great benefits, and some (unfortunately) are a waste of money.
