Revolution or Evolution? An Analysis of E-Health Innovation and Impact using a Hypercube Model
This study utilizes a hypercube innovation model to analyze the changes in both healthcare informatics and medical related delivery processes based on the innovations from Tele-health care, E-health care, to M-health care. Further, the critical impacts of the E-health innovations on the stakeholders: healthcare customers, hospitals, healthcare complementary providers, and healthcare regulators are identified.
These results indicate that the innovation from Tele-health care to E-health care is architectural for healthcare customers, radical for both hospitals and healthcare complementary providers, and architectural for healthcare regulators. From E-health care to M-health care, innovation is architectural for both healthcare customers and hospitals, racial for healthcare complementary providers, and modular for healthcare regulators.
