The convergence between the rapid expansion of information and communication technology (ICT) and the revolution in healthcare has fostered the resurgence of eHealth, which is committed to finding solutions to the challenges posed by socio-economic changes to today's healthcare systems: demand for healthcare, ageing population, increased mobility of citizens, need to manage large amounts of information, global competitiveness and provision of better healthcare.

ICT provides us with the appropriate context for creating and sharing resources when and where necessary, providing the opportunity to work in collaboration online, to share and disseminate good practices, to create knowledge through the actions and reactions of its members and to introduce telemedicine in health organizations.
