E-health stands for electronic health care, also known as care provided through a secured online network. More and more attention is going to so called ‘blended care’, in which regular face-to-face conversations are combined with online interventions like for example online treatment modules.
Online treatment: the client can, via his/her e-health casefile, get insight into his psychological problems. There are also offered online exercises and other websites for further information. The information the client receives, can help at gaining insight into the client’s problems and help solve them. If the client has very complex and long lasting problems, e-health can be a supporting factor, but it is not considered as treatment in the way psychotherapy provides.
E-consult is also possible. With this, an online question is sent by the client within a secured environment.
