What does the term ePatient mean to you?

Recently I was reading about ePatients. To those unfamiliar with the cultural meaning and implications of the term the letter “e-” is broadly interpreted. I was curious and asked some of my family what they think the “e-” stands for. Electronic, engaged, enlightened, and other ideas were generated, but most were guesses. ┬áThis makes me wonder, what do others thing the term means. Without googling and finding other’s definition, how would you define the term?
