About this book

Introduction

Investing in eHealth: What it Takes to Sustain Consumer Health Informatics examines the evolution of the IHCS and the significant changes in organizational culture and operational systems that may be required for successful and sustained implementation. This book culminates a set of general guidelines for any health care provider striving to successfully employ the model, and suggests directions for future research on the diffusion of IHCSs and related technologies.

Investing in eHealth provides a principled approach to support health care managers, clinicians, and educators interested in complementing clinical services with interactive health communication systems (IHCSs).
