Digitalization

The trend for an increasingly more interconnected society enables the provision of healthcare in a new and innovative way that is not necessarily based on the physical meetings between patients and healthcare professionals. The use of digital solutions increase patient accessibility and the key to success lies in the ability to develop working methods and patient pathways for many patient groups. Digital solutions also offer opportunities to share the necessary and relevant information between patient and healthcare provider, and among different healthcare providers.

Digitalization supports healthcare in many ways. Patients can receive healthcare via a remote connection with the doctor via chat or video link, while the opportunity for measurement and monitoring of health data at home allows for more individually adjusted care. Greater involvement can be achieved through access to information for the patient, as well as any close relatives.

A broad implementation of digital and accessible care also requires adoption of legal conditions and remuneration models by the public health authorities.
