Terveyden 5G/6G sovellukset – pohjoisesta puhaltaa 

Kansalaisten terveystottumuksiin ja elämäntapoihin vaikuttamalla voidaan saavuttaa merkittävää kustannusvaikuttavuutta terveyspalveluiden saatavuuden turvaamiseksi myös tulevaisuudessa. Yksilön itsensä keräämä tieto innovatiivisen teknologian avulla ja tämän omadatan integroiminen osaksi terveydenhuollon keräämää terveystietoa on avain tulevaisuuden terveyden haasteiden ratkaisemisessa.

Korona-pandemia on entisestään nopeuttanut maailmanlaajuista siirtymistä 5G-verkkoteknologiaan, mikä tuo tullessaan nopeat, viiveettömät ja suuren kapasiteetin mobiiliyhteydet. Tämä mahdollistaa etämonitoroinnin ja etävastaanoton sekä uudet innovatiiviset tavat tuottaa ja välittää terveyspalveluita sekä tukea ennaltaehkäisyä. Älykkäät etäratkaisut edistävät terveyspalveluiden tasapuolista saavutettavuutta mikä on tärkeää erityisesti haja-asutusalueilla, kuten Lapissa.

Advancing the secondary use of health data – insights across Europe and globally 

We don’t need to invent everything ourselves, and we can learn from each other. This has been the core message in the National Initiatives Network on the secondary use of health and social data since 2017, when Sitra established and started coordinating the network. The network focuses on sharing knowledge and up-to-date information on creating the best growth environment for health and social data research, development, and innovation in Europe and globally.

The event highlights network’s core activities. Each country will share what obstacles they have overcome, lessons they have learnt, how ready their countries are to uptake the upcoming European health data space legislation and what they are most excited about in the development of secondary use of health data. It is a great opportunity to hear updates from various countries, also outside of Europe such as Australia, Israel, and New Zealand.
