The term e-health is used to designate all electronic health services. Everyone involved in modern health care (such as hospitals, pharmacies, social and private insurance companies, pharmaceutical firms, product providers, physicians and medical officers, laboratories, home health care, patients,  government agencies, etc.) are electronically networked with modern information and communication e-health technologies. At the same time, e-health optimizes patient care as well as technical and administrative processes while leading to cost savings.

We are glad to provide advice on the specific laws and privacy regulations affecting your particular area in the health care sector (such as social and private insurance regulations) and the data privacy coordination required when interacting with other areas of health care.
