Atlas of eHealth country profiles: The use of eHealth in support of universal health coveage

Dear All,

As we all know that eHealth plays a vital role in promoting universal health coverage in a variety of ways. For example, it helps provide services to remote populations and underserved communities through telehealth or mHealth. It facilitates the training of the health workforce through the use of eLearning, and makes education more widely accessible especially for those who are isolated. It enhances diagnosis and treatment by providing accurate and timely patient information through electronic health records. And through the strategic use of ICT, it improves the operations and financial efficiency of health care systems.

The third global survey on eHealth conducted by the WHO Global Observatory for eHealth (GOe) has a special focus -the use of eHealth in support of universal health coverage.
