Abstract

This study examines how the use of telemedication, influences the health of it’s users. In the study we work with an phenomenological understanding of the term “health”, and is based on A. Antonovsky's work on health. We examine the matter of telemedication and health, through theory of human-technology interactions, theory of health and theory of subjectivity and society. We conclude that health is subjective matter, and that achieving health by the means of telemedication, is a question of using, understanding and benefiting from the technology and the changes it brings to your life. We also conclude that the both telemedication and its user, are under influence of strong movement in society, which has the potential of working for and against the health of the patient.
