Description

Investment in healthcare has taken off once again, up by 17%, with an underlying need to go from pacts to acts. In 2014, there was an increase in expenditure on digital technology within the healthcare system of 1.37 billion Euros. This is clearly a good sign, but it is now time to put into practice the digital innovation plans for healthcare. Savings of up to 1.6 billion Euros can be made by widely adopting the electronic medical record (EMR), alongside economic benefits worth 4.9 billion Euros to members of the public through digital services. Only 13% of patients use online systems to book medical appointments, and a mere 8% access their clinical documents online. There is a growing interest in health and wellness apps. Despite all the problems, many regions have introduced their electronic health records (EHR). However, 83% of the public has never heard of them and 88% does not know whether they exist in their own regional area. General practitioners are making increasing use of digital systems, with 55% accessing online services to consult laboratory and medical reports and 43% to make specialist appointments.
