dc.description.abstractThis article discusses the challenges of combining significantly different methodological approaches to investigate citizens' access to e-health. We define the term access beyond broadband connectivity (material access), to also include motivation, skills and different type of usages, which in e-health ranges from accessing online healthcare information, services and clinical treatment, to self-support. Around the globe, e-health has continued to expand with the expectations that it will both reduce healthcare expenditure and improve quality and access to healthcare for all citizens. However, emerging evidence suggests that, if not managed carefully, e-health will further exacerbate health inequities because those with poorer health are often those with lower or no information and communication (ICT) use.en
