Telemedicine solutions in medical care are a must

The next edition of the eHealth Forum is behind us. It is an international meeting of eHealth leaders, medical professionals, patients’ representatives, representatives of the government and local governments. It took place on 18-19 September this year in Sopot. We were a part of it! The event program was rich in presentations and panel meetings.  The possibility of open discussion and exchange of thoughts on the reality and the future of the medical sector in Poland is a huge value of the eHealth Forum. Among the discussed topics, telemedicine and its future were an important one. Specific commitments have been made. They can be summarized by the wording that telemedicine in Poland is not an option but a necessity. The president of Nestmedic S.A., Patrycja Wizińska-Socha, actively participated in the panel “eHealth Research Agenda”, moderated by Bartosz Pędziński from the Medical University of Bialystok. “The presented content and discussions give me and my team a lot of inspiration for further activities in the telemedicine sector, in which we have been operating for almost 4 years. We see a chance for a significant shift in the approach of health leaders and government representatives to the topic of remote medical services. Telemedicine technologies are now tested and available. It’s time to build an effective model of their introduction in Poland. ” said Patrycja Wizińska-Socha after her return.
