Research Methods in Innovation Processes for Digital Health Technology

12-16 August 2019 at Odense University Hospital, in Odense, Denmark.

The course is arranged by the University of Southern Denmark and the Transatlantic Telehealth Research Network (TTRN).

Aim

The aim of the Ph.D. course is to give a comprehensive introduction to research methods used in the different phases of the innovation process for digital health technologies such as telehealth, home monitoring, mHealth, video consultation, robot surgery, artificial intelligence, electronic health record systems, POCT (Point of Care Testing) devices etc. Thus, Ph.D. students will during the course learn about relevant research methods and their strengths and weaknesses in the design, assessment and implementation of digital health technologies. During the course the students will examine the possibilities for using the methods in their own Ph.D. project.

Ny bevilling til fortsættelse af Future Patient

Vi har netop fået en bevilling på 5 mio kroner til fortsættelse af Future Patient – telerehabilitering af hjertesvigtspatienter. Vi skal dels arbejde på at forberede en implementering af projektet dels tilpasse Hjerteportalen.dk til rehabilitering af atrieflimren-patienter.

Vi glæder os til de næste trin i processen, og vil gerne takke Aage og Johanne Louis Hansens Fond for støtten.

The Use of Telerehabilitation Technologies for Cardiac Patients to Improve Rehabilitation Activities and Unify Organizations

Qualitative study by Dinesen & Spindler.

Results

The case study of cooperation in an interorganizational context of cardiac telerehabilitation program is characterized by the following key themes and patterns: (1) integrated workflows via a shared digital rehabilitation plan that help integrate workflow between health care professions and organizations, (2) joint clinical practice showed as a community of practice in telerehabilitation developed across professions and organizations, and (3) unifying the organizations as cooperation has advanced via a joint telerehabilitation program across municipalities and hospitals.

Conclusions

The Teledialog Telerehabilitation Program was a new innovative cardiac program tested on a large scale across hospitals, health care centers, and municipalities. Assessments showed that the Teledialog program and its associated technologies helped improve interorganizational cooperation and reduce fragmentation. The program helped integrate the organizations and led to the creation of a community of practice. Further research is needed to explore long-term effects of implementation of telerehabilitation technologies and programs.
