Electronic Healthcare Solutions
The health sector holds an important place in our societies, as evidenced by funds appropriated to it, the role the state plays, and the large number of associated parties with various functions that it connects. Because medical advances have resulted in increased life expectancies, and because citizens are being actively encouraged to take personal responsibility for their health, the number of people in need of medical care has increased. As a result, public healthcare systems are coming under severe financial strain.

With such demand for medical care, health services and related public-sector services are overwhelmed and spend more time managing than treating. Unless effective solutions are found to cope with this high demand, the system will ultimately lose all credibility.
