The main objective of this work is to provide a review of existing research work into predictive, personalized, preventive and participatory medicine in telemedicine and ehealth. The academic databases used for searches are IEEE Xplore, PubMed, Science Direct, Web of Science and ResearchGate, taking into account publication dates from 2010 up to the present day. These databases cover the greatest amount of information on scientific texts in multidisciplinary fields, from engineering to medicine. Various search criteria were established, such as (“Predictive” OR “Personalized” OR “Preventive” OR “Participatory”) AND “Medicine” AND (“eHealth” OR “Telemedicine”) selecting the articles of most interest. A total of 184 publications about predictive, personalized, preventive and participatory (4P) medicine in telemedicine and ehealth were found, of which 48 were identified as relevant. Many of the publications found show how the P4 medicine is being developed in the world and the benefits it provides for patients with different illnesses. After the revision that was undertaken, it can be said that P4 medicine is a vital factor for the improvement of medical services. It is hoped that one of the main contributions of this study is to provide an insight into how P4 medicine in telemedicine and ehealth is being applied, as well as proposing outlines for the future that contribute to the improvement of prevention and prediction of illnesses.
