It makes meaningful contributions to the eHealth discourse, by suggesting solutions and making recommendations for good practice and potential ways ahead. Legal challenges discussed include issues related to electronic medical records, telemedicine, the Internet and pharmaceutical drugs, healthcare information systems and medical liability.
