The chapter presents case studies of e-health applications that the author has been involved in such as a paramedic application that presented treatment information to the paramedic. Furthermore, a review of e-health applications to help people with medical issues and in particular people with mental health problems is discussed. In addition, various tools to use in the development of e-health systems such learning models, focus groups and the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) are presented. Finally a methodology that combines technological consideration as well as human factors issues is proposed.
