Healthcare supported by IT processes and communication.
eHealth means healthcare supported by IT processes and communication. It can also be seen as healthcare practice using the Internet. If health applications and links on mobile phones are included, it is also referred to as mHealth.
Healthcare poses security challenges due to the sensitivity of health records, the increasing interoperability of medical devices, and simply the fact that human well-being and life are at stake. The increasing need for better cybersecurity will result in the need for eHealth solutions that can withstand growing threats.
