Stop playing around with subsidy-driven pilots!

For more than a decade, developers and care professionals ask the healthcare community to use IT solutions to make the necessary changes happen. This because everyone involved is convinced that there are plenty possibilities to increase survival rate, decrease costs and safe doctor’s time. The results are marginal but help is on its way! During a Mobile Healthcare Congress, Neelie Kroes (European Commissioner for Digital Agenda) pointed out that telemonitoring can increase survival rates up to 15%, decrease costs with 10% and save one hour per day on doctor’s time.

Is this the signal to stop playing around with subsidy-driven pilots and presentations of so called futurists where the optimized healthcare only exists in PowerPoint presentations? It’s time to act!
