Abstract

Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 emerge at a time when health care reforms are stymied. Current barriers to an effectively functioning health care system are linked to the historical, political and social institutions and processes that are preventing health system interoperability causing issues with access (to service and information), continuity of care, safety and the assessment of program delivery. An interoperability framework, identifying citizens, providers, policy makers and researchers is developed and related to the improvement of understanding, access, trust, discourse, and practice for the purpose of moving toward a high performing health care system. Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 offer great promise as an eHealth platform to synergistically catalyze significant improvements to health care delivery, however, caution is advised about uncritical adoption. Barriers to progress and opportunities for advancement are identified and questions for future research are posited.
