"How to integrate the Patient eXperience into non-face-to-face activity such as telemedicine?"

20.10.2020 | 16h (CET)

The technology necessary for non-face-to-face provision of healthcare is available, but its integration and usability is not yet widespread. During the pandemic, telemedicine with the support of numerous companies and start-ups traversed administrative barriers to quickly establish their use and become the essential model in providing care to patients. In this context characterized by uncertainty and complexity, we could not reflect on how to ensure empathy and the patient experience with the use of these technologies. How to integrate the patient experience into the design of the programs, instruments and care provided by telemedicine?

Prof. Kristian KIDHOLM

Professor of innovation, HU Odense, Denmark.

Kristian Kidholm is Professor of Innovation at Odense University Hospital (OUH) and one of Scandinavia’s leading experts on evaluating the value of health technology. He is Head of Research at CIMT and in charge of Health Technology Assessment (HTA) at OUH, which provides the hospital management with a research-based foundation for deciding whether a new form of treatment or technology should be made part of OUH’s service for patients. He developed the MAST (Telemedicine Assessment Model), which is used as a framework to assess the value of telemedicine. Today, the model is the most widely used telemedicine assessment model in Europe and the MAST model is recommended by the European Commission to ensure a comprehensive and research-based assessment of telemedicine in the health sector. The model is based on 7 dimensions, of which 3 are related to the patient and his experience: the patient and technology, patient safety, the patient’s perspective.
