eHealth - Improving Healthcare Access and Delivery

 eHealth technologies are providing solutions to longstanding challenges in healthcare access and delivery across the globe. Rural and remote areas can now connect to medical expertise through telemedicine. mHealth apps empower patients to monitor and manage chronic conditions. Electronic health records enable secure data sharing for streamlined care coordination. And artificial intelligence promises more accurate diagnostics and personalized interventions. eHealth is helping transform reactive medicine into proactive, preventative, and patient-centered care. It brings quality healthcare to more people at lower costs - a development that can improve health equity.
