Abstract£ºNetwork and Service Management have made rapid strides in many sectors of the economy, such as telecommunications and finance sectors. Thanks to the explicit support for cooperation within and across organizations, cooperative network and service management lead to better efficiency and better quality of services worldwide. There have been attempts by many groups to implement such benefits in the healthcare sector, the largest business sector in the world. However, this sector presents some unique challenges that have to be overcome if networked services have to succeed in this sector. These challenges include semantic interoperability, privacy enabled services and difficulties in the evaluation of such services.
This talk will present an overview of emerging trends and future challenges in this field based the presenter's experience in the areas on integrated service management and e-Health through the leadership of a number of global initiatives, such as the WHO eHealth for Healthcare Delivery (eHCD) involving four countries, ITU-D Mobile e-Health initiative (m-Health) for developing countries and the global assessment of mobile mHealth involving twelve countries.
