Abstract

eHealth is the application of the internet and other related technologies in the health care industry. The dramatic improvement in access to the internet from anywhere in the country, the rapid reduction of cost of access, high mobile penetration, and increasing computer literacy has made adoption of eHealth feasible in Sri Lanka. In this background Sri Lanka has made pioneering efforts in human resources capacity development and innovation in the field of eHealth. These developments are summarized in the context of the broader field of eHealth in this oration.
