The evolution of advanced digital telecommunication techniques​ has enabled the development of multimedia systems to support e-health applications, in particular in the area of telemedicine

In the Standardization Sector of the ITU (ITU-T), this is handled by Question 28/16 (Multimedia framework for e-health applications), which focuses on standardization of Multimedia Systems to support e-health applications. Q28/16 is allocated under ITU-T Study Group 16, which is inter alia  the Lead ITU-T Study Group on e-health. This high-level Question will coordinate the technical standardization of multimedia systems and capabilities for e-health applications in ITU-T and will develop corresponding Recommendations.
