The Last Word
Healthcare providers are demonstrating some resistance to e-Health due to the associated transformation of the revenue model from providing treatment to ensuring wellness and prevention. Propagators of e-Health are focusing on its cost and quality benefits to drive adoption as there are no clear mandates in Asia-Pacific to keep the patient away from the hospital.
Developed countries understand the need for standardization and are taking the requisite measures. However, there is an urgent need to educate the provider community.
Care coordination that focuses on the seamless integration of healthcare services beyond the hospital environment and interactions with healthcare providers is emerging as a key area.
