NORDeHEALTH Summary of a Patient Survey in 4 countries Har passerat

Onsdag 24 maj 2023 10:35 - 10:55 F2

Föreläsare: Anna Kharko, Maria Hägglund
Moderator: Hanife Rexhepi

Spår: Nordiskt fokus, Northern Excellence in Online Records

Currently, most studies on patient online record access (ORA) have collected data from one country or region impeding international comparisons. The NORDeHEALTH research project, with partners from Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Estonia, strives to evaluate the implementation of patient ORA through joint research. In 2022, we conducted a patient survey in all four countries to study patients’ opinions and experiences with the PAEHR provided through the national patient portals.

In this session, we describe the methodology for the NORDeHEALTH 2022 Patient Survey and present an overview of the data collected in Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Estonia, respectively.
