About this book

This publication identifies and discusses important challenges affecting eHealth in the EU and North America in the three areas of law, ethics and governance. It makes meaningful contributions to the eHealth discourse by suggesting solutions and making recommendations for good practice and potential ways forward. Legal challenges discussed include issues related to electronic medical records, telemedicine, the Internet and pharmaceutical drugs, healthcare information systems and medical liability. Ethical challenges focus on telehealth and service delivery in the home, Web 2.0 and the Internet, patient perceptions and ethical frameworks. Governance challenges focus on IT governance in healthcare, governance and decision-making in acute care hospitals, and different models of eHealth governance. The publication provides useful support materials and readings for persons active in developing current understandings of the legal, ethical and governance challenges involved in the eHealth context.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book presents both the obvious and less expected legal, ethical, and policy challenges of eHealth recommendations. … The target audience includes healthcare professionals, scholars, and policymakers on both sides of the Atlantic, but the book would be particularly useful for readers interested in European Union eHealth issues. … Each chapter is detailed and rigorously researched and provides numerous citations and supplemental reading suggestions. This is an impressive work in its depth, breadth, and detail.” (Tyler S. Gibb, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2013)
