Abstract

Aim. The aim of this paper is to present the possibilities of application and use of modern information and communication technologies that can improve multidimensional, holistic nursing care of the patient.

Methods. The data was collected from literature reviews.

Results and Conclusion. Tele-diagnosis, teleconsultation and tele-nursing, i.e. services for monitoring the patient's condition and life parameters, and facilitating therapy and rehabilitation at a distance, are a response to the growing demand for modern medical services in an ageing society. This paper discuss e-services as e-consultations, which are a  direct and quick possibility for health check, Internet Patient Account (IKP),  e-prescriptions, e-sick leave and also the project "TeleNrsCare”, which create a network for the exchange of knowledge, technology, experience and best practices. E-health and information and communication technologies can bring benefits to the whole society by improving access to medical services and improving their quality. An ageing society and an increasing number of those who are chronically ill and stay at home result in the need for a highly qualified staff and relevant technology to quickly and efficiently provide them medical assistance.
