Abstract

This essay seeks to contextualize e-health for the health law teacher. First, the history of e-health illustrates the way that health care in the United States has devalued patient expectations and access to care while over-investing in processes and technologies that serve the few. Second, e-health provides a rich source of examples revealing the transformation of health law away from an increasingly marginalized doctrine rooted in professional and personal paradigms. Third, e-health provides a disruptive model, particularly in its most recent iterations, that can be used to shake out otherwise dormant issues of law and policy.

Keywords: ehealth, law and technology, health law, healthcare policy
