The session will discuss how mental health services can become accessible 24/7 through innovative approaches and technologies as well as new models for collaboration. How far have we come with digital self-help solutions and what is the potential for expansion of this type of service?
Digital access to health care services is starting to push the public health institutions to think differently and organise in a new way. Citizens are increasingly demanding, and they are choosing clinics that offer quick and easy access to a GP. Furthermore, digital tools such as apps and chatbots for self-diagnostics are constantly emerging. This session takes a look at three cases from Denmark, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands and the value - and disruption – they are creating.
