Denmark to adopt Continua guidelines on telemedicine

16 August 2012

According to a study released in May by the European Commission's Joint Research Center, Denmark – along with England and Scotland – is seen as a pioneer in the use of telemedicine in standard patient treatments. The study further pointed out that the future success of telemedicine and telehealth programs depends on a number of factors, including funding for mainstreaming, an integrated governance model, stakeholder engagement and a strong set of legal and clinical standards. Denmark’s decision to base their telehealth system on Continua Guidelines underscores the importance of using industry standards from the start.
