eHealth

eHealth, also called digital health, consists in the use of technology to improve human health and well-being and to enhance the services of the national health system, improving its quality, safety and the possibility for everyone to access treatment.
In ehealth we talk about patient 2.0, referring to the new approach that the health system will need to adopt, placing the person at the centre of everything.

In other words, the ehealth software development of IPPOCRATE AS consists in a set of services and digital tools for health and medical care. The software house uses information and telecommunication technologies (ICT) to improve activities such as prevention, diagnosis and treatment, as well as to improve the monitoring and management of health and lifestyles.

The objectives of ehealth

The measures adopted by the European Commission and related to ehealth are aimed to:

  • Improve citizens' health by using transnational digital tools, meaning that they will be available everywhere within the EU;
  • Strengthen the quality and access to healthcare, in harmony with the individual strategies of the various member countries;
  • Spread the efficiency and ease of digital services for healthcare, thanks to the involvement of healthcare professionals and patients.

The benefits of ehealth

Thanks to the advent of new technologies, such as machine learning, internet of things (IoT), robotics and wearable, the way of understanding medicine has radically changed.
Software development for ehealth represents an innovation that connects new technologies, clinical and administrative processes of healthcare companies and the skills of people working in the sector.
eHealth innovation brings together several disciplines, including clinical information technology, medicine and business administration.

  • Optimisation of costs and unnecessary diagnostic or therapeutic interventions;
  • Better quality of medical care and better efficiency in the health sector;
  • Greater interaction and cooperation between the patient and the clinical structures;
  • Lifelong learning courses in medicine for doctors and patients;
  • Sharing of disease studies at international and local level;
  • Extension of the scope of intervention of health beyond the national borders.
