In order to improve the quality of health care and widen the accessibility, health care providers are consistently looking to inject information and communication technology to the traditional health care system (Mair, et al., 2012). This process can be defined as e-health. World Health Organization (WHO) has defined E-Health as “the use of information and communications technologies (ICT) in support of health and health-related fields, including health-care, health surveillance, health literature, and health education, knowledge and research” (Blaya, et al., 2010). In other words, e-health can be defined as the use of information technology in order to make a progressive approach in the field of health care. This paper outlines some of the developments in the creation of e-Health framework, and which aim to create an integrate approach to e-Health. This includes the DACAR e-Health framework developed in collaboration between Imperial College, London and Edinburgh Napier University, and which was implemented within Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London.
