Special Issue in International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health: Barriers and Enablers in the Adoption of Widespread Digital Solutions in Healthcare
Technology is providing exciting opportunities to significantly improve the quality of care and quality of life for people—older people, those with long term conditions, people with physical and mental health concerns, children and families, and carers can, and do, all benefit from access to technology enabled care. It enables personalised, outcomes focussed approaches that support personal choice and control, giving patients and their carers both information and options and improving their connections with clinicians and other care professionals.
This is a rapidly-developing area of activity and it is imperative we continually strive to be ambitious, creative and practical in our design, development and delivery of technology enabled care. Adoption of innovative solutions is a longstanding challenge in healthcare and the underlying factors that cause that reluctance or resistance to change is increasingly becoming understood around the world. To secure safe, effective and sustainable health and care systems across the world needs a change in our existing service models. There is a need to understand the opportunities that digital tools and services can present in supporting this transformative change, as well as the challenges and barriers to adoption.
This Special Issue is calling for papers that explore any aspect of technology enabled care from innovation including new service models, the area of health technology assessment, the opportunities that “next generation” technologies may bring, through to the exploration of the deployment and scaling up of digital services.Prof. Dr. George Crooks
