E-health plays an essential role in supporting health care in today’s digital society; it is perceived as crucial for high quality and cost-effective health care. However, getting the expected benefits from e-health has been difficult to demonstrate.

There has been a growing interest in adopting e-health governance frameworks to obtain reassurance that investments return the expected results in health care. However, how IT governance is implemented within health care and the actual impact on strategic alignment remains poorly understood.

My recent Journal article presents the findings from a recent comprehensive technical report on e-health governance. The report explores the application of well-known frameworks (e.g., COBIT and ITIL) within the National Health Services (NHS) in Scotland and their impact on e-health governance maturity and strategic alignment with health care. The report mainly presents results of a longitudinal study conducted since 2008 within Scottish health care organisations, but it offers cross-national and cross-sectoral benchmarking. My Journal article discusses the implication of these report findings.
