Your Local eHealth Networks
Each eHealth Network Site supports the eHealth agenda nationally by providing appropriate resources and increasing knowledge and understanding of the eHealth environment among general practice and primary care.
eHealth Support Officers in each eHealth Network Site work to provide support and education to the primary care sector to adopt and continue to use eHealth systems and services as they become available.
