This document describes how eHealth will be used to address the health system’s priority goals and challenges to deliver health outcomes. It outlines how eHealth will support a more equitable health system through presence of information about the availability, location, expertise and services of health care providers. Use of eHealth solutions will speed up ordering and results reporting; reduced time and cost to health consumers undergoing unnecessary or duplicated diagnostic tests; improved diagnosis and treatment activities; reduced travel time using telehealth services; and efficient and effective disease monitoring and response.
