Next HI Conversations

27 May 2021: "Care professionals’ experience of using video consultations in Sweden" with Nadia Davoody, assistant professor at the Health Informatics Centre and programme director for the Joint Master's Programme in Health Informatics

The Covid-19 pandemic has affected not only our day to day life but also healthcare in many different ways. Healthcare providers all around the world have had a huge challenge in providing care to a large number of critically ill patients. As a result, several healthcare providers have increased the provision of care via digital channels that allow remote care. Video consultations have widely been growing since 2016 by private healthcare providers. The private online healthcare providers in Sweden have been criticized on several points. We have studied physicians’ experiences of using and providing care through video consultations prior to the pandemic. Our main focus has been on their work environment and educational needs.
