The future healthcare and social care data source may already be attached to your wrist

The political ambitions in the Nordic countries are increased emphasis on patient centric healthcare and social care. Perhaps the most obvious example of technology that can provide self monitoring and self service possibilities for both healthcare and social care sector is wearables. Some regions and municipalities are already making use of these devices.

See our attached overview of functions for some, by the public, most used wearables in the Nordics: Download overview (PDF)

Disclaimer: This is NOT a way to compare different wearables and the quality of their functions, rather to indicate the width of possible functions.
