This chapter brings the reader’s attention to the promotion of health in a telehealth-enabled world. The authors speak to application of health information technology to both citizens (those who seek to maintain health) and patients (those with illnesses or health problems that require treatment). Topics include telehealth treatment, improving health literacy via electronic communication, and collection of health data via mobile devices. These subjects are couched in a discussion of the interaction between the stage model of change and acceptance of technology.
