Seminar: Professor Christian Nøhr - Monitoring use of eHealth on a national level | Event | AIHI - Australian Institute of Health Innovation

Event Date
Wednesday, 8 April 2015

Many countries have national strategies for eHealth development and dissemination. The availability of systems and functions are often benchmarked on a national level, but as the availability approaches 100% it becomes interesting to know how much the available functionality is being used, and to what extent it is being used as originally intended. As we experienced in the Nordic countries (Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, and Finland) monitoring and comparing the actual use of eHealth in different countries is quite complicated. I will discuss some of the challenges we encountered, and present some of the results.

Speaker Profile:
