Study Visit (Use Case) Report on "Telehealth and Telecare Services within Scotland and Role of the First Line"

Report on the joint AIM - EHTEL Study Visit 19 - 20 January 2012. Background for Study Visits / Use Case Reports with a focus on Disease Management and Personal Health Services in Support of Chronically Ill Patients and Persons at Risk: Following current health needs, a paradigm shift “from acute care to prevention and proactive management of chronic conditions” is needed and some examples of early adopters of this trend may already be observed. To adjust health and social care to this paradigm, eHealth and telemedicine play a crucial role. To better understand the (potential) contribution of eHealth telemedicine to an efficient organisation of health systems and services, to improve health care overall, to explore critical success factors and risks, to learn from the lessons of others and share experience about integrating telemedicine services into daily clinical practice, EHTEL and AIM have decided to join forces and to invite their respective constituencies to bi-annual telemedicine study tours from 2011 onward. The study visit to Scotland was the second in the series of bi-annual telemedicine study tours.

Study Visit (Use Case) Report on "Disease management supported by telemedicine: a use case in Southern Denmark"

AIM and EHTEL organised a short study visit that took place on March 16 and 17, 2011 at Odense University Hospital in the Region of Southern Denmark.

The visitors comprised around twenty members of the two organisations. They included clinicians, payers, and members of eHealth-related not-for-profit associations. Denmark is a country of some 5.45 million citizens, of which some 7 per cent are immigrants. Its geographic area is 43,000 square kilometres. In terms of technology, it has Europe's highest broadband penetration (35% in 2010) and its population has extensive access to the internet. In health terms, it has five separate regions which are responsible for healthcare whereas its 98 municipalities are responsible for homecare. The healthcare budget is largely paid for through the tax system, and there are co-payments for some elements like dentistry and medicines.
