With a week to go, all attention is turning to Christmas. Unless someone has an acute problem, it’s a time to put up with those aches and pains and injuries.

2009 has been a time when ehealth has started to be taken seriously but is still very much in the pilot phase with many large health organisations. Look at the keyword ehealth in Google Trends and the line is very much upwards with quite a growth in newsflow.
And 2010? Hmm, progress could be tricky in the UK as the budgets get cut. Same goes for the US with the reforms being kicked off. Maybe expectations can’t be too bullish.
