This is a call to all friends of REshape, to fill out a 4-question survey on their ideas about a refined eHealth definition. Based on these results, we will decide whether or not to engage in a systematic review. Please fill out our survey! It will only take a few minutes.
Cost is the new taboo word in healthcare. During and/or after my presentation there is always room for questions and interaction. It is not uncommon that somebody comments on my presentation with a sentence like: “so in the end it’s all about the money?!” But no, money is only part of the reason, quality of care and quality of life are equally or even more important. This is in no way untrue, but why is thinking about costs such a bad thing? Do we not hope that our children can receive healthcare as well? And hopefully even better than we are having now?
This study shows that social media could be used to supervise healthcare services and better include the patient’s perspective in supervision. Interestingly, the Dutch rating site ZorgkaartNederland was the only source that provided relevant information.
