- Information and telecommunication technologies are called
to play a major role in the changes that healthcare systems
face to cope with chronic diseases. A growing trend in many
countries is to offer patients Telemedicine, Telecare, e-
Health and access to their health information through the
use of electronic personal health record (PHRs). u-Health,
e-Health, and telemedicine shares the similar notion of
healthcare service, and could be used interchangeably as
those are the coined terminologies for the similar services.
u-Health is the acronym of ubiquitous healthcare and
the term is currently used very widely and has substituted
the terms Telemedicine, Telecare, and e-Health in Korea.
It is equivalent to those previously used terms, however, has
more comprehensive meaning to encompass concepts such
as the ability of healthcare service using information and
telecommunication technologies in 5 domains such as space,
time, provider, consumer and type of service.
