Increased peace of mind in a digitised healthcare service
Security has always been key in healthcare. The healthcare service exists to secure the lives and health of citizens. Treatment and care must take place under safe and secure conditions – this is a basic prerequisite. Hence security is already an integral part of everyday life in the Danish healthcare service.
As digital solutions become increasingly important within our healthcare service, safe and secure conditions also include strong cyber and information security. Digital tools will allow us to offer citizens and relatives a safe, accessible, and coherent healthcare service. A healthcare service where citizens can easily get in touch with their own general practitioner and hospitals, where all relevant information follows citizens along treatment pathways throughout the healthcare service, and where citizens can experience treatment and care in close proximity to their homes. There are many advantages. The Danish healthcare service is already one of the most digitised healthcare services in the world, and there is still great potential.
