This paper presents an e-Health alternative for a general practice family health clinic. The paper first presents a vision and mission by providing information about the target audience, core beliefs of the practice (relative to e-Health), how e-Health fits with the clinic's care delivery model, practices that might need to be changed, and the target goal. The paper also describes e-Health applications for the health clinic website and discusses the benefits of each application to the consumer and organization. In addition, the paper describes access issues that might limit use of the applications and solutions to these issues, as well as addresses policies and procedures to protect the confidentiality of the e-Health clinic's patients. Further, the paper states the ethical positions of the clinic and develops methods for measuring the positive and negative outcomes and the impact of e-Health on the consumer, provider, and organization. Lastly, the paper also drafts a Patient Bill of Rights for the clinic.

From the Paper:

"To be successful with e-Health at the Your Health clinic, the staff will need to assess the technical knowledge level of their patients, determine the willingness of the patients to embrace new technology, and give guidance on the physical equipment they will need.
"Team B suggests introducing the patient to the new technology with a step by step computer assisted tutor. Team B will produce a PowerPoint presentation with voice overlay that can be downloaded at home for review, or accessed from a computer at the Your Health clinic."
