Digital healthcare guarantee in Stockholm
by Louise Wahlström
The Stockholm Region in Sweden has decided to implement a digital healthcare guarantee starting at the beginning of 2020.
On November 26th the Stockholm Region decided to add a digital healthcare guarantee to the national healthcare guarantee. The national healthcare guarantee ensures that Swedish citizens should be able to get in touch with their healthcare provider and receive care within a specified time frame. With this new digital guarantee, Stockholm also promises its’ citizens that they will be able to choose how they contact their healthcare provider within that time frame. This means all healthcare providers in Stockholm need to be able to offer a digital alternative when it comes to patient contact.
