Telemedicine in health care

Telemedicin is rapidly spreading in health care. Yet, health care seems to be in a love-hate relationship with telemedical devices and changes in working processes.

Advocates for telemedicine emphasize its potential to facilitate doctor-patient encounters and follow-up because it can bridge geographical distances and increase accessibility.

Opponents of telemedicine point out that both face to face interaction and confidential dialogue between health care personnel and patient, as well as professional decision-making and treatment by health care practitioners are at risk.

RESILIENT Health Care has brought important new impulses, tools and methods to patient safety, such as Safety-II, resilient potentials and the Functional Resonance Analysis Method.

In this seminar, we will explore safety issues from a resilient health care perspective with a focus on work processes and everyday behaviors.

PARTICIPANTS WILL LEARN about principles and methods of Resilient Health Care, Efficiency-Thoroughness Trade-off and how resilience engine­ering can contribute to the safety of telemedicine. We present examples from Denmark and Australia, a country where telemedicine is a necessity.

— Resilience is an expression of how people, alone or together cope with everyday situations – large and
small – by adjusting their performance to the conditions. An organisation´s performance is resilient if it can function
as required under expected and unexpected conditions alike (changes/disturbances/opportunities).
(Hollnagel, 2018)

Centre for Quality & Health Innovation Centre of Southern Denmark in collaboration with Danish Society for Patient Safety, Danish Society for Qua­lity in Health Care, Danish Network for Research in Patient Safety and Quality in Health Care, and
