As healthcare comes under more pressure because of lack of funding and staff, one option which is often mentioned as a possible solution is the use of Electronic-Health (E-Health) and Mobile-Health (M-Health).
- E-Health: the use of new information and communication technologies, and special internet technologies, to support or increase health and healthcare.
- M-Health: the use of mobile devices such as mobile phones, tablets, and wearables (such as watches). They are usually used in the form of apps (applications).
- M-Health is often used in combination with E-Health.
