What is eHealth?

Digital Healthcare Practice

eHealth or e-health is a recent (estimate back to 1999) term for healthcare practice that involves all kind of digital and electronic processes, communications, files, records, tests and remote support. We could position it next to health informatics as that covers all aspects of health electronic/digital processes. But in all cases when we refer to eHealth, the use of Internet is required.

During the last decade healthcare practice has become more familiar with the use and benefits of eHealth. New areas and features have already been added with the extended use of mobile devices transforming the channel of communication between doctors-to-doctors or doctors-to-patients, referred to as m-health or mHealth.

The last 4 years have proved that eHealth & mHealth are not only part of our lives but also an inevitable step if our world wants to save lives more effectively without having any restrictions due to isolated locations or severe weather conditions.


“The right information that reaches the physician easily and at the right time may save lives”


Grafimedia develops, installs and supports digital medical information systems. Clinical information may be available as text, voice, image or video. Clinical images that are generated by medical equipment, such as an ultrasound scanner, CT, MRI, colposcope, endoscope or microscope are transferred into a computer, where they are integrated with other relevant information into an electronic patient file. This multimedia file may then be made available, via a Local Area Network (LAN) or a Wide Area Network (WAN) to any point that is needed. When there is no capability of transferring digital information via network, it can be recorded onto a CD-ROM or DVD and then physically delivered to where it is needed. Although Grafimedia is focused on the digital clinical information should there be a need for a hard copy printout, perhaps for documentation purposes, we provide the solution for printing on plain A4 paper.

Our IT experts correctly evaluate customer needs and can recommend a total solution that fits best the budget of the private practice, diagnostic center, clinic or hospital. They may recommend systems that have been developed in-house, or they may recommend top-quality products from well known third party manufacturers, from all over the world. Careful scrutiny of financial and technical data, coupled with comprehensive analysis of your needs, allows our IT experts to propose the solution with the most favorable cost to value ratio.
