Germany seeks inspiration in Danish e-health and robotic solutions

A delegation of German doctors and decision makers from Universitätsklinikum Schleswig-Holstein and Universität zu Lübeck visits the Region of Southern Denmark to find inspiration in Danish e-health and robotic solutions.

On February 28 - March 2, 2017, a German delegation visited Denmark to gain new knowledge on Danish telemedicine, e-health and assisted living technologies. 

In the morning, on their first day, the delegates visited the Hospital of Southern Jutland to learn about future trends in robot technologies and telemedicine. Here, they saw how these technologies are used in the rural areas of the municipality of Aabenraa. The delegates then visited the town hall to hear how patients with dementia are helped by the implementation of various assisted living technologies. The day ended with a visit to Rise Parken, a nursing home for patients suffering from dementia, to see the implemented technologies in practice.

On the second day, the delegates visited Odense University Hospital where they were introduced to the hospital’s many experiences in using telemedicine and mobile technologies to improve communication with the patients. The day finished with a visit to Denmark’s first research unit for Research in E-mental health situated at The Centre for Telepsychiatry in Odense.

The third day of the visit was spent learning about Big Data and its future impact upon the healthcare sector, as well as hearing about Danish research into personalized medicine.

The visit to the Region of Southern Denmark was organised and hosted by Healthcare DENMARK. For more information about this visit, please contact Senior Consultant Tanja Staniok.
