eHealth Initiatives Across Latin America (LATAM) : Impact and Future Direction of eHealth

In either case, healthcare information technology (healthcare IT) plays a key role in improving quality and efficiency of care as well as enhancing workforce productivity. Improvements in healthcare IT drive robust collection of data which can be used to develop national level health policies and programs through electronic Health (eHealth).
