Improving health & well-being through e-Health

Our health care system faces numerous challenges regarding its coverage, cost, and quality. e-Health aims to contribute sustainable solutions to these challenges. e-Health is concerned with the use of digital technologies and new media for the delivery of health-services across the total care spectrum, from well being, prevention and treatment to chronic care, and for all age groups, including the elderly, as well as for improvement of health care delivery (e.g. electronic patient files), professional education (e-learning), and online research, in both physical and mental health. e-Health aims to develop health-related clinical, social and technological knowledge and products. e-Health research in the Network Institute has productive collaborations with related work done in the EMGO and Talma institutes, but has its own character and strength, building on the specific expertise of teams in the Network Institute in Social Science, Computer Science and Language and Communication.
