The primary focus of Danish healthcare is to improve quality of life for patients. Numerous patient groups experience significant advantages from being closely monitored while they are in their own home. Patients often feel more secure at home and do not have to commute to and from outpatient departments.
Telehealth solutions not only benefit the patients in terms of avoiding unnecessary transportation – they are also cost-efficient for the society as a whole. Effective collaboration between municipalities and medical professionals and experts brought in from hospitals, ensures that patients receive better treatment with both faster and better outcomes.
Videoconferencing and home monitoring of patients offer a good supplement to physical consultations with caregivers, and online tools for rehabilitation are increasingly being implemented to prevent readmissions. Online dialogue-based tools provide caregivers in the municipalities with the ability to tailor rehabilitation programs for their patients. The results from the rehabilitation programs are available online, and the caregiver can assess the data and adjust the exercises if needed.
