Readiness for E-heatlh in the developing countries like Pakistan.
Gomal J Med Sci Jan ;10(1):160-3.
Modern healthcare services are expanding beyond the traditional methods of physical contact with the patients to the virtual platforms of e-Health. Both biblical and new models are now serving the societies side by side around the planet but in the developing states like Pakistan the concept of e-Health is still alien to masses. Computer-based health information systems are becoming order of the day. It is argued that having a successful e-Health is not simply a purchase of hardware and software; rather it demands social treatment by addressing all the issues of technical, organizational, human and social nature. This paper extracts and juxtaposes the determinants of user-readiness using existing research from all over the world to determine the issue in the perspectives of e-Health in Pakistan.
