The theme for Future of Health 2017 is patient focused, remote mobile care

Today, a large part of government funding for health is allocated to intensive care which requires hospitalization resources. Chronic and severe illnesses mean patients continuously come back to different health instances. Long waiting times, scarce resources, failing information flows and slow systems are only a few of the problems driving cost and patient frustration. 

With new innovations such as distance surveillance, tools for remote diagnosis and advice, distance consulting, own digital care and tools for clinical decision making, today’s healthcare challenges can be overcome.
