Abstract

In eHealth, ethical quality refers to several other quality attributes. Understanding its versatile nature helps designers consider ethical requirements better in design processes. This can change the nature of a design process in a more pragmatic direction enhancing this way the total quality of products and services. The significance of ethical quality in eHealth increases also because the nature of given services changes rapidly. The growing number of distance based services is one example. In the study, theoretical frames for design are considered in terms of ethical quality with a content analytical approach.
