Managing eHealth gathers together state-of-the-art expertise in the field. A broad overview of eHealth concepts is presented alongside an in-depth analysis of some of the most important related issues. As such, this book constitutes an excellent source of information for gaining a better understanding of information technologies in healthcare; for reviewing how healthcare will change as a consequence; and how to manage these changes in order to realise eHealth's full potential in creating value for patients, professionals and the system as a whole. It highlights best practices and challenges from the point of view of different stakeholders, including professionals, patients and consumers. The book's content is scientifically robust but remains a hands-on and informative volume. The insights will allow the readers to participate in and actively drive the health sector's profound transition process.
