Abstract: The increased availability and use of information and communications technologies (ICTs) including mobile devices has created many new opportunities for supporting the achievement of healthcare outcomes. That is, e-health offers tremendous potential to transform the manner in which health services are delivered and interventions are carried out in the healthcare industry. A plethora of e-health applications are emerging though many are also quickly disappearing, and users are still unsure of the true e-health benefits. In this chapter, we discuss some key developments in e-health. We argue that leveraging their inherent power can create opportunities for achieving tangible outcomes in healthcare. Additionally, this chapter will assist e-health researchers and practitioners channel and focus their research efforts to developing areas. Having extensively reviewed extant research, we focus on health awareness and education, personal health information management, standardization, m-health, and security and privacy.
