Healthcare Innovation Centre – Capital Region of Denmark
Healthcare Innovation Centre initiates innovation projects in all 15 hospital units of the Capital Region. The work of the Centre also involves helping to improve the quality and efficiency of the health service through the development and application of new products, services and forms of organisation. It is therefore of vital importance to the Centre to support knowledge-sharing among the hospital units in the region and with the business community.
At home the patient has access to a lot of information through the public Danish Healthcare Services. This enables patients to communicate with other patients and health professionals, and to find information eg. about their personal health data and information about prevention, treatment and coping with a given disease.

Virtual Rehabilitation
By means of a monitor and a 3D-camera, it is now possible for individuals to get a virtual rehabilitation program at home. Through these tools, the citizen is introduced to the exercises, which have been predefined by a physiotherapist or occupational therapist for the citizen in a personal training program. The system sends information/results digitally at an individual level, which means the contact persons, such as physiotherapists and occupational therapists, can follow the progress online.
