Study Visit (Use Case) Report on "Disease management supported by telemedicine: a use case in Southern Denmark"

AIM and EHTEL organised a short study visit that took place on March 16 and 17, 2011 at Odense University Hospital in the Region of Southern Denmark. The focus of the visit was on the way in which the hospital and the region are seeking to handle the management of chronic conditions through the use of telemedicine. The visitors comprised around twenty members of the two organisations. They included clinicians, payers, and members of eHealth-related not-for-profit associations. Denmark is a country of some 5.45 million citizens, of which some 7 per cent are immigrants. Its geographic area is 43,000 square kilometres. In terms of technology, it has Europe's highest broadband penetration (35% in 2010) and its population has extensive access to the internet. In health terms, it has five separate regions which are responsible for healthcare whereas its 98 municipalities are responsible for homecare. The healthcare budget is largely paid for through the tax system, and there are co-payments for some elements like dentistry and medicines.
