Examining E-Health

November 6, 2002

Based on a 2002 GIH roundtable meeting, this Issue Brief is intended to help health funders better understand the fluid and dynamic world of e-health.  

The report profiles the work of three foundations active in e-health: California HealthCare Foundation, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Tides Foundation. Their work illustrates the range of foundation activities related to e-health, including: providing leadership both within communities and at the state and national level, including stakeholder convenings, developing a better IT infrastructure within health care; unding research and development of new applications; improving technology literacy among patients and providers and providing technical assistance to potential users; enhancing privacy and security; supporting demonstration projects, evaluations, and quality measurement; acting as a catalyst for partnerships and collaborations; developing and disseminating tools, research, and best practices; and monitoring e-health activities.
