eHealth tools and services

The Global Observatory for eHealth (GOe) was established by the World Health Organization in 2005. As its initial task it carried out the first global survey on eHealth. The survey covered seven key themes in the eHealth domain and one of these is the subject of this report which summarizes the needs for eHealth tools and services of the WHO Member States and their expectations from the WHO Secretariat as expressed in the survey. It is targeted at policy makers, eHealth practitioners, researchers, and academics.
