Readiness for e-health in the developing countries like Pakistan

Qamar Afaq Qureshi, Iftikhar Ahmad, Allah Nawaz

Abstract



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.
