Defining e-Health

E-Health is a compound and dynamic term for people, health (and social) care education and delivery, organisations, information and communications technologies (ICT), infrastructures, policies and means combined to facilitate, measure and improve the intentions, actions and outcomes of health (and social) care.

In a nursing context people refers to patients, carers, nurses and public; means refers to partnerships plus funding ranging from the macro level of the public sector to personal budgets; intentions, actions and outcomes covers education, the nursing process, records, quantitative and qualitative metrics.

To be holistic metrics must incorporate safety, access, personal outcomes, benefits, integrated informatics and economics.
