Overview

"Digital Health draws upon research from different parts of the world and offers on up-to-date review of the literature in this field. It also presents a detailed account of recent research carried out in Britain on the effectiveness of government-sponsored pilot health information, advice, and transactional services provided via kiosks, the Internet, and interactive digital television. It considers the effectiveness of these communications technologies in relation to a range of district applications, their use by the public and perceived usefulness and authority, and the potential of remote health delivery to support or supplant more traditional and direct forms of health diagnosis and treatment." The book will be of interest to those involved in the academic study of digital media developments, e-government and remote health, as well as to policymakers and practitioners working in these rapidly growing fields of endeavor.
