Standards andeHealth
ITU-T Technology Watch ReportJanuary 2011
eHealth systems that use information and communication technologies for the delivery of healthcare services andinformation hold great promise for improving global access to healthcare services and health information, particularly inthe developing world. Delivering on this promise requires more universal eHealth interoperability standards, overcomingtechnical infrastructure barriers, and addressing privacy, security, and other legal requirements.
 
 The rapid change of the telecommunication/information and communication technologies (ICT)environment requires related technology foresight and immediate action in order to propose possibleITU-T standardization activities as early as possible.
ITU-T Technology Watch
surveys the ICT landscape to capture new topics for standardization activities.Technology Watch Reports assess new technologies with regard to existing standards inside and outsideITU-T and their likely impact on future standardization.
