E-health systems can potentially transform healthcare through mobile health delivery, personalized medicine, and social media e-health applications. Reaching the potential for advancements in e-health will only be achieved through information and communication technology standards efforts that facilitate interoperability among systems and devices, provide unqualified privacy and security, address the unique needs of the developing world, and leverage existing ubiquitous technologies such as social media applications and mobile devices.

The rapid evolution of the telecommunication/information and communication technology (ICT)environment requires related technology foresight and immediate action in order to propose ITU-Tstandardization 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.
