Why do we need more patient-centric health systems and where are the challenges in current structures? How can digital technologies foster more patient focus in health care? With our experts in integrated care, e-health and evidence, we want to look at three cases of supporting a patient focus in health: 1) investigating patient-empowerment in structurally underdeveloped areas, 2) patientempowerment for more adherence and compliance, and 3) thirdly the role of patient-empowerment in evidence-based medicine through patient-reported outcomes measures.
