Abstract

This project assisted Forbrugerraadet (the Danish Consumer Council) in identifying issues that Danish consumers of health information technology systems face, with a focus on the domains of privacy and interoperability. We held 14 interviews with health IT experts and stakeholders from different organizations to gain a balanced perspective when understanding the issues. We identified nine major issues for patients and healthcare providers and provided eight recommendations to address these issues. These issues and recommendations were presented in a policy paper that Forbrugerraadet can distribute to Danish legislators.
