E-health not reaching full potential, says study

Ian Jardine, independent consultant, member of TeHIP and co-author of the report The Impact of e-Health and Assistive Technologies on Healthcare said: “It’s important that the people understand the potential of e-health applications. They won’t do that until they start integrate that into their care pathways. [They] should not have to wait for infrastructure to be put in place by the National Programme for IT… There’s a lot of potential available now… We can do a lot in terms of home monitoring outside having a full electronic record.”
