Abstract

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) relevant to health and healthcare systems can rise their effectiveness, expand quality of life and “reveal” innovation and novelty in modern health-related markets, thus implicating options for further growth. The broadly used term “e-Health” regularly implicates the use of ICT in health products, services to improve health of citizens, efficiency and productivity in healthcare delivery, and the economic and social value of health, in general. In this end, the LiveCity Project aims at empowering the citizens of a city to interact with each other in a more productive, efficient and socially useful way, by using high quality video-to-video (v2v) over the Internet. In this work, the LiveCity platform for e-Health is presented, along with two use cases for remote patients telemonitoring and emergency cases.
