Good health and well-being

​ICTs have the potential to deliver benefits across the global healthcare ecosystem. Patients can contact health care services remotely regardless of their proximity to a healthcare centre. Health care workers can, for example, learn and prepare for disease outbreaks, identify patient symptoms, follow established treatment protocols, perform remote diagnostics, access expert support and so on. Big Data analytics can help produce snapshots, analyze trends, and make projections about disease outbreaks, health service usage, and patient knowledge, attitudes, and practices.
