Summary
The eHealth series is primarily meant for government ministries of health, information technology, and telecommunications, as well as others working in eHealth -academics, researchers, eHealth professionals, nongovernmental organizations, and donors.

The telemedicine module of the 2009 survey examined the current level of development of four fields of telemedicine: teleradiology, teledermatogy, telepathology, and telepsychology, as well as four mechanisms that facilitate the promotion and development of telemedicine solutions in the short- and long-term: the use of a national agency, national policy or strategy, scientific development, and evaluation. Telemedicine - opportunities and developments in Member States discusses the results of the telemedicine module, which was completed by 114 countries (59% of Member States).
