From Care to PreventionA Holistic View for Future e-m/Health ICT Services

Dimitri Konstantas

Abstract

ICT based services and products are today a major element in the support of health care: e-heath and m-health are offering tools that can monitor patients 24h per day, provide valuable information to care personnel and trigger the dispatching of assistance. However, technology itself is not enough: Cure without prevention will not sustainably solve the health care problems of the next 40 years. New innovative ICT based services are needed, integrating technology and life style and social models helping educate the (future) patients to acquire healthy habits and allowing them from one side to postpone for several years the appearance of health problems and from the other side how to be as much as possible self supported in coping with their health problems.
