«The expression ‘virtual ward’ is trending. But is it just the expression we hear about more often, or is there a real trend? And by the way: what is a virtual ward? And what is it good for?»

“A virtual ward is a solution that supports patients who would otherwise be in hospital to get the acute care, remote monitoring and treatment in their own homes, with the use of digital, remote monitoring health tools relaying real-time data to the hospital. The main difference between ‘full-grown’ virtual wards and the earlier existing solutions is the available data. Virtual wards provide the same data real-time as would be available if the patient was hospitalised.”
