  1. 1. eLearning has great potential to improve health care - National health The computer and Internet revolution has generated exciting new opportunities for more people than ever before to show up online and demonstrate their knowledge and talents at a relatively low cost. This is as true in health care as in the entertainment industry and other walks of life. The Imperial College London reported on Jan. 12, 2015 that eLearning is as good as traditional training for health care professionals. According to research electronic learning could offer opportunities for millions more students to train as doctors and nurses across the world.

It is possible that wider use of eLearning may help to address the need to train more health workers across the world.

This demonstrates the potential of information technology to transform health care. http://www.examiner.com/article/elearning-has-great-potential-to-improve-health-care
