Abstract

Background: eHealth being a secure and cost-effective mode of use of information communication technologies (ICT) in healthcare services, and conducting surveillance, literature, and education in healthcare for gaining knowledge for conducting further research.

Objective: The technology for point of care and point of care medical testing is still in infancy, requiring further research for producing various eHealth diagnostic devices to support eHealth systems. This is important that such e- devices (eDiagnostics) should have minimal involvement of user for analyzing direct biological samples and should be affordable to general population.

Methods: This prospective article explores technological advances in remote monitoring of pregnant women.

Results: Technology is allowing pregnant women to stay away from hospitals, and it’s improving care—for those who can get access, and ediagnostics will be promising for them during covid 19 pandemic.

Conclusion: The technology for point of care and point of care medical testing is still in infancy, requiring further research for producing various eHealth diagnostic devices to support eHealth systems.
