Recap on Thursday’s #esac tweet chat

Although eHealth and similar concepts have been in the lexicon for almost a decade, if not more, there seems to be increased emphasis on harnessing the use of new and emerging technologies in healthcare/medicine and in public health. Last week’s eSAC (Public eHealth Innovation in Latin America and the Caribbean) tweet chat focused specifically on Public eHealth. As a participant in these chats, and someone looking to increase my knowledge of this area, I tried to get a clear definition (and examples) that differentiates ehealth from public health. Thanks @soroyajulian and @FelipeMejiaMedina for continuing to expand our understanding of these areas and how they are operationalized.


As for examples:!/SoroyaJulian/status/162692742139490304!/FelipeMejiaMedi/status/162692713995710464!/FelipeMejiaMedi/status/162692485343232000

And finally:!/SoroyaJulian/status/162690874608852993!/FelipeMejiaMedi/status/162693044829831168
