Abstract

This chapter offers a brief introduction to the phenomenon of eHealth, and its increasing deployment to improve the quality of healthcare delivery. The chapter also gives an insight into the contents of the book by discussing the various issues raised in its 16 chapters that focus on legal, ethical and governance challenges. It concludes with a set of reflections on the kinds of concerns that have been common to the chapter authors, and that are likely to continue to face eHealth in the near- and mid-term future.
