The eHealth Landscape: A Terrain Map of Emerging Information and Communication Technologies in Health and Health Care

The transformation of the U.S. economy over the last decade by emerging communication technologies has been dramatic, unpredictable, and inconsistent. While the financial services sector has been turbocharged by the Internet and online trading, for example, the delivery of health care services has remained largely unaffected by innovations in IT. This will change, of course. To help consumers understand the changes already underway, as well as those that lie ahead, the New Jersey-based Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has just published The eHealth Landscape: A Terrain Map of Emerging Information and Communication Technologies in Health and Health Care (136 pages, PDF). Written by T.R. Eng of EvaluMetrix, LLC, the report summarizes the major players, issues, and emerging trends and technologies in the eHealth arena "so that stakeholders can make informed decisions in this area." An excellent overview of an important subject.
