Digitalization of Health Care: Findings from Key Informant Interviews in Sweden on Technical, Regulatory, and Patient Safety Aspects

Research output: Contribution to journalLetterpeer-review

Abstract

Over the past few decades, digital technologies for health care have been introduced to improve effectiveness, reduce costs, and enhance access [1]. The case for digital health care increased dramatically during the COVID-19 pandemic [2,3]. However, less is known about some of the broader conditions under which these technologies would be able to contribute to improving health care [4]. To inform policy development from a national perspective, we conducted key informant interviews around 3 domains of digitalization: (1) infrastructure and skills, (2) regulatory considerations, and (3) patient safety and quality of care (see, for example, Desveaux et al [4]).
