Digitalized healthcare


Most people want more care and who is to say that this is wrong without explaining why today's level is the valid one, writes Mårten Blix, IFN, and Johanna Jeansson, Dagens Industri, in a blog on the Forum for Health Policy. In this perspective, digital care can be appreciated as a positive innovation: "To the extent that patients choose digital care via a video call instead of visiting a healthcare center, there are several benefits to society. Patients will not need to travel, the doctor's time can be used more efficiently and the risk of infection from a physical visit to a healthcare center is avoided."
