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.

As we continue to debate the issues of health care in our nation, I began to explore some of the very funny moments I observed and not-so-funny consequences of the drama that is unfolding and is being played out on our national televisions, our political capital, our streets, our homes, and by our politicians and our citizens. Names and identities are often given for a reason. Without a name or identity, we are all beings roaming this earth. Let's imagine for a moment a world where no names or identities are attached to anything. Imagine waking up and all your family members, friends, pets, things, etc., have no names, no identity. Imagine how chaotic your day would start off. You walk into a hospital full of patients with no identities, no names, a nursery full of newborns with no names, no identities, a home-care setting full of home-care patients with no names, no identities. I am sure that you are getting the drift by now. Yes, chaos would ensue, to say the least. Now you get the gist as to why we are so attached to the idea of names and identities. Yes, we name and identify people and things for a reason. Identities are given to people and things for a very good reason. Depending on your culture, there are also meanings attached to naming and identifying people and things. Some cultures observe a child and choose a name that suits that child's personality. When Kate, the Duchess of England, and Prince William named their newborn child George the III, it was suggested that the name was chosen due to several reasons as reported below.

Current demographic, economic and social conditions which developed countries are faced with require a paradigm change for delivering high quality and efficient health services. In that context, healthcare systems have to turn from organization-centred to process-oriented and finally towards individualised patient care, also called personal care, based on eHealth platform services. Interoperability requirements for ubiquitous personalised health services reach beyond current concepts of health information integration among professional stakeholders and related Electronic Patient Records. Future personal health platforms have particularly to maintain semantic interoperability among systems using different modalities and technologies, different knowledge representation and domain experts' languages as well as different coding schemes and terminologies to include home care as well as personal and mobile systems. This development is not restricted to regions or countries, but appears globally, requiring a comprehensive international collaboration. This publication within the Series "Studies in Health Technology and Informatics" at IOS Press presents papers from internationally leading experts representing all domains involved in eHealth.

The term Telehealth covers a wide spectrum of disciplines, ranging from the enabling of direct clinical interventions to patient-centered care needs such as personal monitoring and care team support, as well as education, policy and professional aspects. Contributing to the solving of healthcare sustainability challenges and supporting the development and delivery of a wide range of innovative care and treatment models, Telehealth also acts as a major driver for change in global health issues. This book, Transforming Healthcare Through Innovation in Digital Health, presents the accepted full-paper, double-blinded, peer-reviewed contributions, as well as the editor-reviewed invited keynote papers, delivered at the 7th International Conference on Global Telehealth (GT2018), held in Colombo, Sri Lanka, on 10 and 11 October 2018. Approximately 50% of the total initial submissions were accepted. The conference provided a platform for the sharing of best practice and research directions across the international Telehealth community, and the 14 papers presented here deal with a variety of themes ranging from data collection and analysis to the design of interventions and delivery mechanisms, in situations from public health and primary care through to consumer health informatics, and from implementation and algorithm design to privacy and ethical considerations. Offering an overview of the innovation and diversity of today’s Telehealth domain, this book will be of interest to all those involved in the design and implementation of healthcare solutions.
