    • A global consultation meeting on eHealth for countries was held on 12-13 February 2004, at WHO headquarters in Geneva
    • The recommendations are….
    • 1. Information for health promotion and awareness, medical education, health and biomedical research, evidence-based medicine and e-learning.
    • 2. Information for HIS(disease surveillance, health statistics, MIS, financial, logistical, and GIS), monitoring and evaluation.
    • 3. Information for HCD: diagnostics, treatment, consultation (telemedicine applications) and EPR.

  • 32. Objectives of Telemedicine
    • Enable the medical experts to take control of a remote medical emergency when required
    • The telemedicine system and sub-system especially at the remote location should be designed for use by non-medical but trained personnel
    • The remote telemedicine system should be designed for easy portability
    • The telemedicine solution should be cost effective requiring minimal training, installation and maintenance
    • The telemedicine equipment used should use a optimum bandwidth for data communication
    • Benefits
    • Patient - Improved access to quality care
    • Doctor - improved Disease management
    • Hospital - Substantial cost reduction in short term and long term health care
  • 33. A model of eHealth- Canada
    • COST
    • $142 Billion business
    • 10.4% of GDP
    • 60% of costs for hospitals, physicians and drugs
    • 70% public and 30% private funded
    • Federal Govt coordinates healthcare via the Canada Health Act

  • 36. Challenges in future
    • Human factors
    • Individuals
    • Address concerns about training, liability, patient security and
    • increased workload among providers
    • Organizations
    • Demonstrate the value of eHealth to the health payer, provider and advocacy organizations
    • Align telemedicine with the increasing emphasis on self-care and multidisciplinary care models
    • Continue clinical trials at academic institutions to demonstrate that eHealth is effective and efficient
    • Governance
    • Promote acceptance of a patient-centred and technology-enabled method of health-care delivery
    • Create practice environments that reduce defensive medicine practices, which in turn limit the adoption of new clinical interventions such as telemedicine (e.g. malpractice reform)
    • Create a compelling case for lifting licensure restrictions that inhibit telemedicine activities across borders
  • 37.
    • Economics
    • Pilot new third-party reimbursement mechanisms to attract greater patient and provider participation, particularly in health systems that are not supported publicly
    • Explore global markets for eHealth that allow the export of medical expertise
    • Seek sustainable economic models that support telemedicine in the developing world to address the growing burden of chronic disease
    • Technology
    • Improve usability for patients with limited function, but who aim to benefit from eHealth.
    • Implement methods that verify and authorize access to health information such as fingerprint and voice recognition
    • Create communications devices that are smaller, less expensive and more powerful, which will be available at the point of care
    • Create sensors that are more sensitive, less expensive, passive and less obtrusive
    • Introduce methods of bridging the ‘digital divide’ faced by developing countries
    • A patient in mondola will be diagnosed as Peptic ulcer and not MI by the GTB cardiologist by telecardiology.
    • Ectopic pregnancy will be diagnosed in dhallupura by teleradiology.
