The Health-For-All policy of the World Health Organisation envisions securing the health and well being of people around the world. The policy forms the basis of the primary healthcare strategy of the World Health Organisation, aiming at promoting health, human dignity, and enhanced quality of life. The adoption of eHealth policy has accelerated since 2005 and almost 58% of countries now have an eHealth strategy. The most common digital health applications for mHealth include: education and awareness, diagnostic and treatment support, disease and epidemic outbreak tracking, and healthcare supply-chain management. Telehealth is particularly useful for management of long term health conditions, including Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Chronic Heart Failure, Diabetes, and Epilepsy. An integrated approach to medical and health informatics, translational bioinformatics, sensor informatics, and imaging informatics together with different aspects of personalized information will immensely benefit the eHealthcare projects.
