Abstract: The authors present a concept of the implementation of new eHealth services for the residents of smart cities. Ongoing barriers that delay the deployment of eHealth services consist of a limited legal framework, high initial investment costs, lack of reimbursement and relatively little evidence for cost-effectiveness. Solutions for eHealth may deliver several social and economic benefits through innovative healthcare data management. These solutions give the patient a sense of empowerment within the health care system. The authors conclude that when eHealth is incorporated into the smart city it may affect quality of life and remote health care delivery.
