E-health and standardization

The evolution of advanced digital telecommunication techniques has enabled the development of multimedia systems to support e-health applications, in particular in the area of telemedicine .

In the Standardization Sector of the ITU (ITU-T), this is handled by Question 28/16 (Multimedia framework for e-health applications), which focuses on standardization of Multimedia Systems to support e-health applications. Q28/16 is allocated under ITU-T Study Group 16 , which is inter alia the Lead ITU-T Study Group on e-health. This high-level Question will coordinate the technical standardization of multimedia systems and capabilities for e-health applications in ITU-T and will develop corresponding Recommendations.​

Q28/16 also collaborates with the World Health Organization (WHO), in pa​rticular on safe listening systems.
