eHealth Strategy South Africa 2012 - 2016

This document intends to establish eHealth as an integral part of the transformation and improvement of healthcare services in South Africa, especially enabling delivery on the health sector’s Negotiated Service Delivery Agreement 2010-2014.

The overall aim of this strategy is to provide a single, harmonised and comprehensive eHealth strategy that:
a) Supports the medium-term priorities of the public health sector.
b) Paves the way for future public sector eHealth requirements.
c) Lays the requisite foundations for the future integration and coordination of all eHealth initiatives in the country (both public sector and private sector).
