More about the project
The development and introduction of digital healthcare services for patients is increasing. The need for easy and smooth communication in a simple and user-friendly interface at any time of the day is expected to increase, and reach the level of other services offered by other societal functions. The development is largely driven by private companies, but large investments are now also made by the state and local authorities. Because the field is wide and includes a variety of services and technical solutions, the experiences so far have been difficult to capture and evaluate.
Purpose and goal
The research question in this study is about how introduction of digital solutions can contribute to achieving the goals in the Health Care Act, and more specifically about examining the scope and experience of digital solutions such as digital history recording and e-triage in a primary care setting. The scientific purpose is to investigate in what way the introduction of digital anamnesis and e-triage affect the quality of the patient-carer meeting.
The research project is divided into two sub-studies.
- Sub-study 1: Experiences of digital history recording from a caregiver perspective
- Sub-study 2: Experiences of digital history recording from a patient perspective
The project is part of the research at the e-Health Institute.
