The goal is increased quality of life
The purpose of these spatial solutions, which have already been tested and explored in the municipality of Storuman, is that they will lead to increased quality of life and increased accessibility for all citizens of society, including those living in extreme sparsely populated areas with often long distances to doctors and other healthcare specialists. Three health rooms have so far been established in Norrland, one of which is in Slussfors in Storumans municipality, one in Gällö in Bräcke municipality and one in Stugun in Ragunda municipality, with more health rooms planned. The establishment and verification of these health rooms forms the basis of the digital care platform developed by NHI. Parallel with current projects ongoing development is ongoing.
The whole world in focus
The NHI Virtual Health Room develops and uses different equipment, tools and methods for different community solutions, not only for Sweden but for the whole world. For example, it may be virtual health rooms adapted for big city people who want to test their blood pressure in the supermarket or the traveler who needs to consult healthcare at the airport. It can also be virtual health rooms adapted for people living in completely different types of sparsely populated areas based on their needs and conditions. All to offer people increased service.
Power / benefit
The most important effects of the solution are increased quality of life, increased accessibility, regardless of where you live, as well as reduced costs for care.
• Reduced costs. More care can be offered closer to the care provider regardless of distance to health center. This leads to reduced travel costs for county councils.
• Reduced need for hired healthcare professionals. Because, for example, medical practice can be provided remotely, rather than via a spinal care provider, this also results in reduced costs for care.
• Availability and safer care. The custodian can check his or her own health.
• Increased security. By self-checking, the care recipient can detect errors in the past.
• Reduced environmental impact. Reduced travel leads to reduced environmental impact and increased safety.
• Cross-border care. The custodian can visit a virtual health room for sampling or video meeting with "his" doctor outside his own county council. This leads to reduced fees county council between.
• Increased self-determination. In addition, experience shows that the solution causes the caregiver to take more responsibility for his or her own health.
