Enhancing the Reach of Specialised Care


Erik Jylling

Easy and Equal Access to Care

Adapting healthcare to the digital future, the track will explore how innovative technologies - combined with re-thinking collaboration structures - can facilitate easy and equal access to the right healthcare services for all citizens and patients.

In the afternoon session of this track we take a look at how technology has the potential to support socially marginalised groups of society – and discuss the ethical aspects of this. The track also explores cases of how infrastructure can be created to facilitate pro-active use of health and citizen generated data.

Target group

  • Health professionals from all sectors; municipalities, general practitioners, hospitals/regions, psychiatry
  • Managers from healthcare providers and other healthcare organisations
  • Project managers, researchers and IT staff from healthcare organisations
  • Companies in the field of health IT

Programme committee:

  • Erik Jylling, MD. MPM., Executive vice president, Danish Regions, Denmark
  • Lea Bohn, Innovation Consultant, Centre for Innovative Medical Technology, Odense University Hospital
  • Katrine Maruri Zorzabalbere, Event Consultant, Health Innovation Centre of Southern Denmark, Region of Southern Denmark
  • Katrine Schousbøll Leth, Development consultant, Centre for Health and Welfare Technology, City of Odense


Mobile technologies offer new opportunities for reaching out to groups outside of mainstream society. This session will take a look at how technology can help this group of citizens live healthier lives and cope with health issues. During the session, we will also discuss the ethical aspects and the balance between offering services and pushing them onto marginalised groups.

Technology can be a way to support a better reach of specialist services away from the hospital in the local environment of the patients/citizens and for patients to contribute with own data and measurements. But what does it take to get the right infrastructure to reap the benefits from the technological possibilities?
