Abstract: China welcomes e-health service as it is developing globally, but like many other nations it encounters both opportunities and challenges. The rapid development of e-commerce and the wide application of ICT have accelerated their uses in healthcare service. Therefore, the assessment of e-health is becoming more important. We analyze the current situation in China and assess its goals of realizing e-health and the challenges of developing e-health. An earlier version of this material was presented at the 23rd Bled eConference, Slovenia, June 20–23, 2010.
