Technology for More Effective Healthcare
October-December 2009 (vol. 16 no. 4)
pp. 5-7

Editor's Note

In the coming years we will see a strong advent of new digital health services. The patient will be very much connected to the physicians and caretakers and be able to communicate and interact within this relationship. Multimedia, networked communication, and interaction will be facilitating new healthcare services that keep the patients informed, engaged, and connected. The Intel Health Guide is one example of new such systematic healthcare delivery.
