Trends in eHealth

Trends in eHealth
eHealth is a relatively recent healthcare practice that leverages electronic processes and communication to manage healthcare information. eHealth involves simplifying processes related to information, communication and transactions within and between healthcare institutions and professionals by utilizing information and telecommunications technologies.

Currently in practice in countries around the globe, eHealth initiatives have myriad benefits including improving coordination and integration of healthcare delivery, empowering individuals and families to better manage their own health and participation in their healthcare plans, and facilitating public health initiatives.

Outsourcing Center and Wipro recently performed a survey that examined current trends and approaches to eHealth initiatives of organizations worldwide. The survey results do not paint a full picture of the state of current eHealth initiatives but do point to some general trends in this area.

Survey respondents are from five continents and various regions, with the highest percentage of participants from the U.S. (35.6%), Asia (30%), and Europe (17.6%). Individuals are from organizations that include IT service enablers, consulting firms, government agencies, hospitals, community health providers, public health specials and health departments/Ministries of Health. More than one-third of respondents (38.6%) are from small organizations with fewer than 1,000 employees, and about a third (34%) are from very large organizations with more than 10,000 employees. Nearly 20 percent (17.7%) of respondents hold senior-level IT positions, 24.4 percent are consultants, and 7.7 percent are physicians or administrators.
