Launch of the nationwide telemedicine solution for COPD in Denmark
In November 2023, the Danish Regions announced the launch of a national telemedicine solution for patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This is based on previous economic agreements between the government, Danish Regions, and municipalities (KL).
Regions and municipalities have developed the telemedicine platform Telma in collaboration with Joint Support for Telemedicine (Fælles Understøttellse af Telemedicin, FUT) – an organization that manages the joint telemedicine infrastructure on behalf of the country's municipalities and regions.
The general practitioner or the hospital doctor must refer patients to participate in telemedicine follow-up. The patient is given a tablet and devices that continuously measure, for example, pulse and oxygen in the blood. The nurse from the municipality or hospital reviews and assesses the results. If there are signs of worsening COPD or something else, the nurse contacts the patient to investigate whether further treatment is needed.
The solution is expected to be fully rolled out during 2024.
