Resumen

RODRIGUEZ BLANCO, Suilbert et al. Doctor-patient relationship and eHealth. Rev Cubana Invest Bioméd [online]. 2013, vol.32, n.4, pp.411-420. ISSN 0864-0300.

To achieve healthcare excellence, an inviolable principle should be established: Doctor-patient relationship is the most sensitive and humane aspect of medical practice. EHealth, also known as cyberhealth, is the use of information and communication technologies in support of health programs, including medical care. A discussion is provided about the concepts of doctor-patient relationship, information and communication technologies and eHealth, and about the links between them. EHealth (cyberhealth) and information and communication technologies have achieved undeniable progress in the field of medical sciences. However, such impetuous development of technology applied to medicine should be rationally controlled to prevent doctor-patient relationship from becoming a dehumanized patient-device relationship. Healthcare personnel have the unpostponable duty to cultivate and improve doctor-patient relationship, a sacred principle in medical practice.

Palabras clave : doctor-patient relationship; information and communication technologies; eHealth.
