Abstract

This chapter highlights the essential issue of people skills and knowledge for E-Health based initiatives. People-based issues have Knowledge Management (KM) at their core and the best KM implementations rely heavily on skilfully integrating technology with human requirements. The chapter features three short E-Health cases and discusses the human dimensions of each of these. Finally, we call for increased use of Populomics (a comprehensive way of studying health issues and providing focused solutions) when implementing E-Health as this produces a powerful solution taking into account multiple factors.
