Abstract

In this chapter, we review key concepts, using the marketing mix framework, to identify the needs of healthcare consumers, and the tools and services that can fulfill these needs. Unlike traditional healthcare delivery, patient-centered e-health (PCEH) involves the consumer as a partner and has a number of marketing implications. A more informed understanding of PCEH will help practitioners and researchers to formulate marketing strategies that improve healthcare outcomes and are acceptable to patients.
