|Over the last decade, society has witnessed several changes and developments due to the advent of the science of technology. Technologists across the world are producing a number of new inventions and discoveries. Moreover, many key players and investors keep their plans rolling especially in information and communication technology. This new technology, in fact, created more viabilities and facilities for the professionals and other stakeholders in doing their respective professions and services. As a result of such kind of technology, otherwise known as cyber technology, the economic activities of the countries really got a new transformation. The traders and the financial corporations had established their identity in the e-markets and these activities encourage e-commerce in society. Like traders and other professionals, doctors and clinicians are also entered into cyberspace so as to enhance their profession by way of e-health practice. Thus, e-health as a successor to telehealth started getting good expansion and this chapter explains the significance of e-health and emerging legal issues Currently, the Internet becomes an internal facet of our lives. the Internet has really attributed the entire business process a sense of independence from time and location as never experienced before1 Internet has also promoted the growth of service sectors, manufacturing processes, and marketing of industrial goods and intellectual properties as well. Furthermore, the distancing of the service providers from the consumers is now getting so closed and the Internet easily helps the service to cross the borders and most specifically the transporters.2 In fact, the service sectors entered into this new domain and efficiently and scientifically achieving the goals are well remarkable Basically telehealth encounters comfortably supplemented the traditional delivery of health care. Telehealth applications were usually devised to link an urban-based physician with a remotely located patient. Obviously, the goal of such applications was to bridge the geographic gap between the physician and the patient and to increase access to health care. Such applications continue to be an important part of health care delivery in the country and elsewhere. Some of these traditional telehealth applications may actually utilize the Internet protocol. Most importantly, however, they differ in kind from truly Internet-based applications which operate on the premise that a key component in the delivery of health care is that, health care is available online and that the patient has a significantly broader choice in health care-taker and the delivery of health care. This new practice obviously creates a number of problems for the consumers directly and indirectly and the existing legal framework pertaining to addressing this kind of problem is not adequate enough. This research work makes an attempt to deeply discuss the issues and suggests feasible solutions.
