    The field of information and communication technologies (ICT) in health care, now called e-health, is coming to maturity. This is demonstrated by several "real world" accomplishments that will hopefully demonstrate the benefits of ICT in health for all those involved, not the least society and the patients at large. In this article, we will highlight the technical and the profession-specific building blocks, on which e-health applications are based, give a few examples of typical realizations and discuss the evolving political context.
