The goal of this article is to communicate the concept of patient safety as well as the function, goals, benefits, and application areas of eHealth in the patient safety management process. The advancement of information and communication technology presents potential for e-health services and tools to assist innovation in the health services industry. The employment of digital technology in the medical field, on the other hand, has a significant impact on patient safety. As a result, it is vital to consider if e-health services and technology may be leveraged to improve patient safety management. The article is conceptual in nature and was prepared using research methods such as a review and in-depth analysis of health policy literature and papers, reports, and legal proceedings. Although eHealth services and technology may be used to help with a variety of patient safety management duties, they require continual, complex engagement at all levels of the health system, as well as cross-sectoral and worldwide collaboration. This is true for both technological collaboration and the legal framework for implementing the promise of e-health. Patients' and medical personnel's active participation in generating health awareness, as well as their involvement in communication and educational processes, is especially important in the implementation of digital technology.
Objectives: The major purpose of this article is to communicate the essence and determinants of patient safety, as well as to emphasize the possibilities for integrating eHealth tools and services (digital health treatments) in the patient safety management process. The conceptual essay is founded on an examination of literature and materials. The following research methodologies were used: a) study and in-depth analysis of management literature relevant to patient safety management and digital health, and b) document analysis - review and in-depth analysis of international strategy documents on health policy, reports, and legal acts.
