Every two years the United Nations publishes an extensive study into the global state of e-Government. Damian Radcliffe looks at what the current survey tells us about ehealth.
e-Government activity typically supports government-to-government (G2G); government-to-business (G2B) or government-to-consumer (G2C) relationships; unlocking in the process cost saving and efficiencies, whilst also providing end users with new levels of convenience and information.
As a result of this, e-gov activity is increasingly a priority for governments across the globe, with major sectors such as education, business, and health all benefitting from these IT-led efforts.
For the United Nations, e-Government can be a tool for sustainable development and a potential lever for generating “new employment, better health and education.” So what can digital health providers learn from their analysis?
