Editors: Anton Vladzymyrskyy, Malina Jordanova, Frank Lievens

The book "A Century of Telemedicine - A World Wide Overview (Part I)" is the first of a new series, dedicated to a detailed presentation of Telemedicine and eHealth history in various countries. The chapters reveal different national and cultural points of view in the development and implementation of Telemedicine/eHealth solutions for the treatment of patients and wellbeing of citizens. This book provides a glimpse and summarizes the best practical achievements, existing solutions and experiences in six countries - Australia, Brazil, Czech Republic, India, Nigeria and Russia. The goal is to share these experiences with international, national and regional institutions and policy makers as well as with all groups or individuals involved in healthcare. The book was launched during the international Med-e-Tel conference (April 2017, Luxembourg). This new series was inspired by an original monograph dedicated to deep scientific analysis of the history of telemedicine technology worldwide.
