Breakthrough: Patient-Centered Organization of Information and Everyday Care



In organizing primary care and chronic diseases proximity to the patient is the most important principle and there is less of an advantage to be realized through scaling and bundling of expertise. This relates to the accessibility of care of the daily household type where service is more important than deep medical expertise. It also concerns the integrated healthcare for chronic and elderly patients who need solutions close to home. The challenge here is in particular that there are many different health practitioners treating the patient and there is a need for streamlined integration of the treatment and information surrounding the patient. There are brilliant business models in this patient-centered healthcare such as UCLA, ParkinsonNet, Laastari en Patrick Lund.
