Project Details


Researchers are investigating how the virtual medical consultation can be improved in the fight against corona virus. The project is supported with DKK 4.3 million from the Innovation Fund.

The corona pandemic has introduced the virtual waiting room and video consultation in general practice via the 'Min Læge' app to limit the spread of infection. But how best to prepare doctor and patient for a virtual consultation? Can the doctor examine the symptoms adequately at a distance? And how is the security of the new technology? These are just some of the questions that will be highlighted in the project that are expected to run until the year 2021.

Layman's description

The COVID-19 crisis has led to a sudden transition to video consultations as well as a 40% drop in referrals to the GP in the month leading up to Easter. There is a need to ensure the quality of the implementation of the new technology in healthcare. The project will improve virtual consultations between the practitioner and the patient through e.g. tutorials, remote study enhancement materials, and a virtual learning portal.
