This white paper reports on findings from an Outsourcing Center-Wipro study that examines current trends and approaches to government eHealth initiatives of organizations around the world and includes a discussion of the myriad benefits eHealth offers healthcare providers and medical facilities.

    Well, Tom Foremski over at Silicon Valley insider just wrote a piece on how Hispanics in US aren’t getting the quality care they think they need and mentioned that there are issues surrounding interview process with providers that need to simple down questioning to conform to eHealth perameters. Perhaps there needs to be adjustments depending on verbal and non-verbal skills presenting medical information.
