Adoption of Routine Telemedicine in Norway. An overview of activities from 2009 to 2011.

Sammendrag

This study provides findings regarding the adoption of telemedicine in Norway at regional, institutional and clinical level. We reported both quantitative data collected through the Norwegian Patient Register, and more qualitative and detailed data regarding routine telemedicine services in five Norwegian hospitals through a survey. The results are in line with other studies. The rate of adoption is high, and examples of routine telemedicine can be found in several clinical specialties. However, similarly to the experience in other countries, the current level of use of telemedicine in Norway is still rather low, with significant potential for further development as alternative to face-to-face visits. We believe that the adoption of telemedicine is influenced by several contextual factors, such as reimbursement policies as a form of incentive for health professionals. This study is considered as a first attempt to map routine telemedicine services in Norway, and provides useful findings to understand the adoption of telemedicine in routine use. We believe that this work is worthy of future updates in order to report the further implementation of telemedicine services.
