What does the future landscape within telemedicine look like? How will all the past pilot studies and experiences bring us to a higher level of understanding and secure implementation of technologies and open source solutions, which can sustain/ improve the current level of healthcare?

Denmark has a long tradition of securing standards are met when implementing new devices and/or methods. Learn what we have experienced during time, how the current approach to standardisation is and combine this with the latest knowledge around participatory design.
