The reasons behind sundhed.dk’s success – a Skype-Interview with Jakob Uffelmann
As part of our #SmartHealthSystems study which examines the digital transformation of healthcare systems in 17 countries, we have visited five of these countries to take a closer look at what they have achieved. In each country, we have explored the political, cultural, technological and economic factors driving success as well the obstacles to advancing digitization strategies in healthcare. The findings of our cross-national study will be published in November 2018. Until then, we will be highlighting thought-provoking insights and best practices from other countries here in our blog.
sundhed.dk is a national portal that aims to be the first point of contact for all Danish citizens seeking information about their health. Jakob Uffelmann, Director of Innovation at sundhed.dk, tells us how the Danish portal became a success story, how data protection is guaranteed, and what future services for citizens and patients are being developed (see also the following blog post).
The interview was recorded on 7 June 2018.
