The aim of this article was to identify the applicability of digitalization and digital systems within the scope of both Telehealth services and correlated remote services. An integrative literature review was utilized as methodology, and the results were classified by sections, among which: Healthcare information systems (HIS); electronic register (ER); telediagnosis; healthcare Big Data; metrics and Healthcare Technology Assessment (HTA) and digital technologies, professional capacitation & investments. Digitalization and digitalization processes in healthcare, in accordance with Big Data techniques, brought several benefits such as agility in diagnosis processes and treatment of illnesses; gathering, storage and data analysis to provide support for decision-making processes in healthcare management. When it comes to difficulties, we found the lack of investments and professional capacitation, which results in lack of quality to fill the data, as well as the lack of institutional and physical investments, therefore, we identify the opportunity and the potential offered by electronic registers to document ionizing radiation doses of patients submitted to Radiodiagnosis exams.
