eHealth is a term being introduced to link advances in information and communication to the well-being of people. Some of the dominant trends are

  • the analysis of information through computer systems, sometimes noted as cognitive computing. In this field information is gathered about the person, living style, surrounding, genetics to find either
    • specific treatment of a person, sometimes entitled personal medicin or
    • means of suggesting alternative practises to lifestyle in order to minimize risks of e.g. diabetes or heart attack.
  • the use of sensors both in analysis, treatment and in the every-day life, e.g.
    • using sensors or devices to monitor the fitness or well-being of a person
    • non-invasive sensors to monitor blood sugar and blood pressure
    • communication between sensors, the devices of the person and the the cloud.

In eHealth we will also take into consideration the handling of information, especially the context- and content-aware handling of such information. As an example, regular measurements of Diabetes might only need to be distributed in a secure way to an archive, while sensors indicating a heart attack might broadcast the message to everyone in the surrounding.

eHealth in Norway

eHealth (eHelse) is a recent term for healthcare practice supported by electronic processes and communication, dating back to at least 1999 [Wikipedia]. Usage of the term varies: some would argue it is interchangeable with health informatics with a broad definition covering electronic/digital processes in health[2] while others use it in the narrower sense of healthcare practice using the Internet.
