Smart Country: Health and Care

Access to sufficient medical and care services is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain across the whole country. It is particularly important to consider this issue in the context of a rapidly ageing population.

Through the use of digital technology, robotics etc., people can remain autonomous and live within their own four walls for longer reducing the need for access to health and care services. This will, in turn, ease the burden on the national economy.

Digital technology and robots in use will allow for more autonomy at home, making telemedicine and assisted care more accessible than ever before. This development will hugely relieve the economy.
