Description (short summary):
At every step of the patient's journey editors examine and present how eHealth, whether it is delivered through IT or telemedicine, can make the journey less burdensome for and at the same time empower the patients.
In Section 1, basic facts about the challenges are addressed. At the end of the section, a survey presenting care managers' views can be found. They believe that they will be able to deliver a better, more tailored service through telemedicine.
In Section 2, the reader can find patients', professionals' and professors' perspectives on how health care can be modelled around patients' needs. Denmark is one of three European countries where the foundation of a new health care system based on networked eHealth has been established.
Finally, in Section 3, examples and how-to-do guides for addressing challenges on the way from an institutionalised health care to a system built around the needs of a single citizen can be explored. If the new system succeeds, the results will be intriguing.
