We recommend this educational workshop to the public sector in their beginning of scaling up their telehealth and telecare services. MOMENTUM’s 18 critical success factors will enable telemedicine ‘doers’ to understand all the actions that they need to take, from leadership to operations, to expand and enhance telehealth services in their local settings.
We have the pleasure to invite you to Sunnaas Hospital, one of Europe’s largest special hospital for medical rehabilitation. The hospital has since the 1990’s worked with telemedicine solutions for their patient groups and has successfully integrated telemedicine in their services. They are considered one of the best Norwegian hospitals on polyclinical telemedicine, remote monitoring, home monitoring and using care at home through telemedicine.
The boat ride through Oslo fjorden on the way there is a great way to see more of Norway while here.
The workshop is targeting everyone who has experience with using, planning, implementing, or researching a service for patients’ digital access to their health record. The workshop aims to increase the knowledge in Europe regarding the patients’ access to their health record by discussing technical, legal, organizational, practical and cultural barriers for a service for all, as well as investigating possibilities for the future.
