Hur digital kan vården bli egentligen?

English version here.

Låt mig sätta scenen först…Vi har alla pratat med små barn i telefon.
Pappa, pappa titta på dockan!!! Hon kan sitta.
Jaha…mmmm pappa kan inte se det men jag kan titta när jag kommer hem! Ok?
Sådär kan det låta när man pratar med småbarn, av den enkla anledningen att det är naturligt att se den man pratar med.
När telefonen uppfanns var det många som trodde att det skulle bli en flopp. En av invändningarna var just det. Att det skulle vara onaturligt att inte se den man pratade med.
Det finns forskning som visar att ca 70% av den personliga kommunikationen består av minspel, kroppsspråk och röstläge. Tar vi bort 70% av vår potentiella kommunikationsförmåga så blir det som är kvar ganska kommunikations-fattigt.

Nu pratas det, och inte bara pratas faktiskt, om att genomföra vårdmöten med hjälp av s.k AI alltså artificiell intelligens. Vi ska alltså som vårdtagare och sjuka individer fylla i våra åkommor i ett formulär och i bakgrunden avgör en robot vilken diagnos vi har.

Nu pratas det, och inte bara pratas faktiskt, om att genomföra läkarmöten med hjälp av chatt. Vårdgivare (entreprenörer med miljoners miljoner i riskkapital) chattar med flera patienter samtidigt. Ställer frågor och får svar. Man ombeds skicka in en bild tagen med den egna telefonen och till slut får man en diagnos. Jag kan förstå att det är effektivt. Flera patienter samtidigt, dom flesta har säkert virus eller annan vanlig åkomma.

Jag är tveksam… När vi tar bort den mänskliga kommunikationen inom vården så tror jag man som läkare missar en hel del parametrar som borde varit med i bedömningen av patienten.

Men, om man måste prioritera sin tid, vara rädd om miljön och samtidigt behålla sin komunikativa förmåga är väl videomötet ändå överlägset effektivast, även om det förstås inte kan ersätta det personliga mötet fullt ut eftersom man inte kan kramas och bjuda på bullar. Men vem vill å andra sidan krama sin doktor?

Att mötas via chatt, e-post eller rörpost är väl nästan lika bökigt som att köra med brevduvor och knappast ett alternativ för vårdkontakt.

Sen när det visat sig att dockan kunde sitta i microvågsugnen inser man videomötets välsignelse…

Compodium International and Telia in unique collaboration for Swedish Healthcare

Stockholm, November 14, 2017
PRESS RELEASE

In September, Telia launched their Digital Care Rooms and Telia Digital Health Planning  services which build on technology from Compodium.

We are proud to work with a company as renowned as Telia with their new initiatives in E-Health, says Stefan Friis, Nordic Sales Manager at Compodium.  With our experience in delivering digital meetings to the Healthcare Industry through our collaboration with Inera, this is the right arena for us.

We offer an opportunity for patients to meet with their own Healthcare Provider who is familiar with their individual history. This, paired with the high security and simple user workflow of the solution ensures the patient can feel secure. Says Jan Ribe, responsible for ProCare, a part of Telia’s Healthcare Division.

Telia Digital Care Rooms enables Public and Private Healthcare Providers to establish a Digital Presence. The communication is secure, encrypted and is initiated only when the patient  has authenticated via BankID. The solution is furthermore able to be integrated into e.g. journal- and booking systems.

A key part of our offering is the ability to  package in-house and third party applications in a complete solution. Telia’s Digital Health Planning Solution is a good example of this, Jan Ribe continues. To work with an ecosystem of partners with specialist competency such as Compodium is therefore incredibly important for us.

“What we do is to set up a disaster relief service that the authorities will then refer to for different meetings. We have done similar things in Sweden earlier with, among other things, the Armed Forces who can work together to quickly rescue and assess the extent of injuries. In Texas, we have received a request from the hospitals.” says Jon Strindlund, Head of International Markets at Compodium.

Compodium has had a subsidiary in the United States since 2013. One of the US subsidiary’s customers is the Texas-based company Vesalius Ventures with interests in online care. The request came from the Vesalius team Andrew Nerlinger, Lori and David Balch who are now coordinating disaster relief, David and Lori are pioneers in Telemedicine and have extensive experience in “Disaster Medicine” and coordinating disaster relief. They are now engaged in the work to quickly build resources to help with the work to support care in the disaster-stricken Texas. As they already use Compodium’s services, they now want to enable additional resources to coordinate different relief efforts.

Vasamamma – The worlds first midwife reception with secure digital nursery room

Vasamamma in central Stockholm is the world’s first midwife reception, where parents can communicate with their midwife via video in secure digital care rooms.

Patient safety is secured with BankID, a unique security solution from Compodium International AB. “It feels very safe both for us and our patients to communicate safely, even when the parent can sit home on the couch. At the same time, we have increased both accessibility and efficiency, “says Haleh Amirfaryar, founder and CEO at Vasamamma.

– The patient logs in via BankID and is safely waiting for her midwife in a digital waiting room. Midwife logs into her portal with eg SITHS or BankID and click on their patient. Then a digital nursing room is created where the patient and midwife see and hear each other. The personal information is handled with the highest level of privacy and in accordance with both PUL and PDL, explains Bengt Grahn, founder and CEO of Compodium.

Art Clinic

Art Clinic, one of Sweden’s leading specialists clinics, invests in new video technology in order to securely communicate with patients over large distances. This facilitates for patients all over the country to receive an increased availability, especially in the North of Sweden where distances are long.
The patient is offered the possibility to meet with the physician via the Internet using a technology that ensures both high security and good quality. The physician can be at their surgery and the patient can be at home using their smart phone, tablet or computer.
-We open up the possibility for patients to meet specialist doctors even if they live far away, says Ronnie Pettersson, CEO at Art Clinic.
In some cases the patient can take pictures of themselves that can be useful for evaluation during the examination. This means that the patient can be spared a long journey.
For Art Clinic the technology also means that they can reach more patients in a cost efficient manner for expansion all over the country.
The conditions for Art Clinic to use the technology are that it ensures security and integrity as well as high quality video and audio.
The security is high; no-one can hack their way in. And the video quality is high as well, says Ronnie Pettersson.
The video image must be clear enough and the audio well-synchronized to emulate that they are in the same physical room.
Art Clinic subscribes to a virtual meeting service that does not require any specialized hardware. Existing computers, tablets or smartphones can be used, both by the physician and the patient. A software and login credentials are included in the service, supplier of the service is Compodium.

Facts:
Compodium International AB offers cloud based services for digital meetings, telemedicine, e-health and live events, for instance video broadcasts of surgical procedures. Among their customers we can mention Inera AB, Karolinska University Hospital, Uppsala University Hospital, TDC and the Church of Sweden.
Art Clinic is one of Swedens leading specialists clinics and offers care within several areas like plastic surgery, orthopaedics, back surgery, general surgery and injection and laser treatments. Art Clinic has practises in Gothenburg, Halmstad, Jönköping and Uppsala. They have also agreements with several county councils. To start with Art Clinic offers video consultations with their plastic surgeons in Uppsala.

Compodium and internationalization

Compodium was invited to talk about their establishment in the U.S. when the trade organizations Swedish Medtech and Swecare arranged a seminar regarding internationalization. During the get-together in Stockholm, which gathered around thirty interested parties, Bengt Grahn, founder and CEO of Compodium, talked about why the American market for telemedicine and online care is interesting.
Olof Helin, the companies Sales Manager, talked about how Compodium’s more than 15 years experience within e-health can be refined and create customer use on new markets.
Björn Nordwall, Compodium co-worker in Chapel Hill North Carolina, participated via video link from the U.S. and testified regarding the challenges with the American legislation within medical technology and the possibilities as a newly established player find shortcuts and and how to gain access to new business.
-Our pioneering achievements within Swedish telemedicine can now bear fruit when the wave of digitisation within online health and medical care reaches the rest of the world. To be active on an international arena opens up huge possibilities for the export of distance spanning services, says Bengt Grahn and mentions the U.S. as the first in a row of upcoming international activities and establishments.
