Health Innovation

Focusing on innovation

The healthcare sector, both in Denmark and in many countries in all continents, is facing major challenges and undergoing major shifts. Assistance to an aging population, to citizens with more than one chronic disease is ever increasing whilst there are fewer and fewer resources available to deliver the care needed. Self-Management and Prevention are crucial focal point in the future of healthcare.

Focusing on innovation will help the health sector create new solutions, which can deliver quality services in a new and more enlightened manner. This includes Health Tech – MedTech and eHealth solutions – that enable empowerment of the citizen, Independent Living Solutions, welfare technology, etc.

Denmark enjoys a preeminent role within Healthcare IT. Denmark and the Nordic region are also leading sites for testing and developing healthcare innovations.
