This book represents the most current development on the expanding and changing field of telemedicine and e-health, especially in the developing countries. Many things have changed since the publication of the first book in 2004 ("Establishing Telemedicine in Developing Countries: From Inception to Implementation"). Telemedicine has become more popular, and still continues to grow. While there are many good books and materials on telemedicine, this publication can be seen as a work of reference for all of those who want to practice telemedicine and e-health, particularly in developing countries.This publication deals with ways to establish telemedicine and e-health system, not only in the developing countries, but also in the developed world. Hopefully, this book will be a guide that reflects the status of telemedicine at the given time. It is dedicated to all future generations of telemedicine and e-health students, which include healthcare practitioners, administrators, policy makers, technical professionals and others
