eHealth in the peer-reviewed literature…

Posted Feb 03 2010 5:00am

Much to my surprise, two leading health care journals have articles on ehealth.

The first is JAMA (vol 303, no 5, pp 391-470; February 3, 2010), which rarely publishes on the topic of ehealth.

  • Safe electronic health record use requires comprehensive monitoring and evaluation framework (link to abstract).
  • Electronic health records in the age of social networks and global telecommunications (link to abstract). This one is co-authored by Alex Jadad.

The second is a special theme issue on global ehealth (Feb 2010, vol 29, no 2). The Health Affairs blog has a good description of the articles.

Looks like there’s an increasing interest by those in the research communities on the issues of ehealth. I haven’t had a chance to read all of the articles just yet, but it some of the titles look interesting.
