Virtual dialogues address the present and future of eHealth in the Americas

The Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) called on professionals that work in the field of eHealth to brainstorm, discuss and reflect on the present and future of the use and application of information and communication technologies in public health in the Americas.

(From the Director) eHealth: Harnessing technology on the road towards universal health coverage

There are numerous data sources that offer information on the health of a community. Traditional sources, such as hospitals and clinics, provide relatively reliable inputs to existing health-monitoring systems, but often give a delayed or incomplete picture. Additional data sources, such as school and work attendance, veterinary clinics, social media, pharmaceutical sales, and climate-related data do not capture as much information on their own.
