Nowadays, healthcare workers all over the world widely use eHealth in their routine practice. It happens because eHealth offers time savings, provides insight into own health and leads to lower administrative burden. Implementation of eHealth in health care means cost-effective and secure use of information and communication technologies in support of the health and health-related fields including healthcare, health surveillance and health education, knowledge and research.
