Digital Health

Connect care teams and patientsTowards effective integrated care and care continuity 

Why are we striving for connected health?

Health systems struggle with fragmented systems of care. Interoperability between hospital and primary care physicians’ data is often lacking, resulting in

  • information loss during care transitions
  • variable access for patients to the right clinician at the right time and
  • problems with patient data availability for developing care plans.

To enable effective integrated care, patients, hospital physicians and referrers should have access to relevant data sets via secure digital front doors. Caregivers should be supported with remote assistance and telehealth and home monitoring should be used to improve patient outcomes.

A central, smart platform with real time, secure information flow can enable care continuity.
