Online banking has changed our approach to banks, and our vision is for the Portal, sundhed.dk, to change our perception of the health service in the same way. As the health service becomes more and more reliant on electronic communication, more tools and services will become available on the Portal.
Healthcare, medicines and prevention are popular topics on the Internet, and via the Portal, you will be able to find information and communicate with the Danish health service. No advertising or sponsorship credits will appear on the Portal, as it is the public health authorities that are responsible for its creation and running.
A well-functioning eHealth system as complex as the Portal is developed in several stages, as the health service becomes more and more reliant on electronic communication. Thereby, more and more tools and services will become available on the Portal over time. Feedback from its users is considered to be of great importance, and more complex services, several pilot tests and data developments concerning security are to be developed on the basis of this feedback.
The initiative was launched by the Danish Regions, the Ministries of the Interior and Health, Greater Copenhagen Hospital Board, Copenhagen Municipal Authority, Frederiksberg Municipal Authority, and the Danish Pharmaceutical Association. A non-commercial site, the Portal is the result of collaborations between the various health authorities, as well as part of the Danish governments IT strategy. No advertising or sponsorship credits will appear on the Portal, and the portal is 100% free of commercial interest.
