Abstract

A general review is given on advantages and disadvantages of the various forms of e-Health. The sparse available literature on e-Health and peritoneal dialysis is discussed. It is concluded that in general e-Health interventions lead to small but to moderate positive effects on primary health outcomes, although the evidence still is not fully convincing.
