It does not make any sense to launch five-year ‘waterfall projects’, according to Professor and Research & Innovation Manager, Morten Kyng
Experience has shown that with telemedicine, citizens get a better life, live longer and stay longer on the labour market. However, there are a number of barriers to overcome before the technological solutions can be implemented on a larger scale.
A research group in Aarhus clears the way for international standards in the healthcare system. As a result, citizens’ healthcare data is stored in the same format, and IT systems do not have to be rewritten each time a new way of monitoring patients is introduced.
If new telemedicine solutions are to be successful, users must be involved in idea development and design, according to one of the world’s leading experts on the topic, Professor and Research & Innovation Manager, Morten Kyng, Centre for Pervasive Healthcare at Aarhus University. Aarhus University establishes a new telemedicine platform.
Aarhus University, the Alexandra Institute, the National eHealth Authority and a number of companies demonstrate for the first time that it is possible to exchange healthcare data between telemedicine solutions in the home and electronic patient records.
