我们的优先事项

主页和社区护理

The MedTech industry develops products that facilitate the delivery of health services in the community care setting and in people's homes. These technologies save lives, are convenient for patients and make efficient use of healthcare resources.

Homecare and community care

From wound care and ostomy care to home dialysis and telemonitoring, medical technologies are changing how and where services are provided. By facilitating a shift away from traditional hospital care, we are helping to improve outcomes for patients and add value to the health system.

什么是社区关怀?

Community care is generally seen as treatment and care outside of an acute care setting, such as a hospital. It typically includes primary care (provided by general practitioners, nurses, pharmacists and other health professionals), out-patient clinics, homecare, nursing homes, hospices, convalescent centres, ambulatory care (such as intravenous chemotherapy), and providers of medical technologies such as pharmacies, medical device shops, appliance contractors, and homecare companies.

对于包括老年人和残疾人,包括老年人的患者,在当地提供服务比前往门诊预约或被入住的医院旅行更方便。远程医疗允许人们保存自己的独立性,而无线技术与其医疗保健团队安全地享用健康数据。

提供效率

欧洲的老龄化人口意味着更多的人需要关心。现在,比以往任何时候都更多,必须找到最有效地利用医疗资源的方法。

技术可以帮助。住院是unavoidable for people with acute illnesses or in need of surgery. Many chronic conditions, however, can be managed just as well in the community.

Inpatient hospital care is expensive. Research shows that many older people are admitted to hospital inappropriately and stay longer than necessary. As institutional care can cost 10 times as much as home care, delivering care in the community is preferable where appropriate.

The medical technology industry continues to develop products that enable people to better manage their disease or health condition themselves and minimise their use of hospital care. This can be empowering for patients, providing them with flexibility and choice.

解锁潜力

医疗技术部门致力于在重组我们的健康服务所需的集体工作中扮演其部分。通过促进社区护理,该行业为砖和砂浆中的传统模型提供了更智能的替代品。

Many of these technologies are new. They have the potential to change patient care, yet health systems tend to evolve slowly. Realising their full benefits will mean investing in the infrastructure that will deliver effective community care, including public awareness. This will provide a further step towards sustainable, cost-effective healthcare systems.

Breaking down silo budgeting structures for the treatment of people with chronic conditions can help ensure patients receive consistent, high-quality care across all care settings. Payers need to move towards paying for an ‘episode of care’ rather than paying based on the site of care.
