Strategies for eHealth are essential to guide the direction of successful eHealth implementation at a national or regional level. In this talk Dr Foster explores the following questions:
• How do we know when we have a good eHealth strategy?
• Is it possible for a good eHealth strategy fail and why?
• How do stratagems threaten effective eHealth interventions?
