Here you can read about one of our three main topics: Connected Health
The other 2 main topics are
Connected Health is all about placing the citizen in the centre of healthcare – not as a passive recipient but making the citizen more able to care for their own health using the possibilities of technology. Advances in for example wearable technology will allow care to move from the hospital to the home, creating a more decentralized model of healthcare.
Connected Health is where the demands of today meet the possibilities of tomorrow. It is where patients and relatives are met with health and social care services that are connected from the first visit to the doctor’s office to when they are discharged from the hospital to the home - and perhaps to the care of the municipality.
Connected Health is also harvesting the benefits of the growing technology market, where digitalized services assist the healthcare professionals in the care of the patients+. It is where information about the patients is available for all relevant healthcare partners regardless of time and place. Information follows the patient instead of the individual and fragmented healthcare systems.
Connected Health is also using big data – the endless collection of data that can be generated to shape the health and care services not only of the future but also of today. The overview of the collected data can assist in providing a more complete picture of the patient’s treatment and overall health.
Connected health aims to maximize healthcare resources and provide increased, flexible opportunities for consumers to engage with clinicians and better self-manage their care. It uses technology – often leveraging readily available consumer technologies – to deliver patient care outside of the hospital or doctor's office.
