How healthcare’s digital revolution will change the doctor’s role. Spoiler alert: The future looks pretty bright

In this article, we introduce four new doctor archetypes that are emerging from the convergence of healthcare and tech and of human and machine. We consider these archetypes the new gang laying the digital railroad of tomorrow’s healthcare system. This future system is truly patient-centric, based on a digital-first approach, highly automated, and one where digital and physical care is seamlessly integrated in order to deliver amazing patient journeys.

Overview of the four archetypes

  • The Builder – creates the core building blocks of the digital railway made up of new solutions, products, and algorithms.
  • The Innovator – assembles those building blocks in meaningful ways to create tomorrow’s patient journeys and clinical workflows.
  • The Healer – leverages those new digital solutions and smart workflows in order to support people’s health and deliver seamless healthcare to patients in new virtual settings, as well as ensure a learning hybrid healthcare system.
  • The Leader – acts as an ambassador bridging the vastly different cultures, from agile product development all the way to clinical medicine, making sure the railroad of tomorrow’s healthcare system is safely built and that the trains run as expected.

Regional newspaper ÖP: “Corona outbreaks accelerate digital health centers”

From ÖP 2020-03-24:

“The spread of the coronavirus has accelerated the opportunities for county residents to receive digital help from health centers.

Primary care manager Anna Granevärn sees this as a necessary measure in an extreme situation.

– It is incredibly important that people dare to seek care when they need it and in recent weeks we have seen that more and more people cancel booked visits for fear of becoming ill, she says.

A few weeks ago, ÖP reported on pilot projects in the county that would increase citizens’ access to care with the help of digital tools. These would be tested in different places and in slightly different ways depending on what the situation looked like in, for example, Sveg, Strömsund or Frösön and central Östersund. Then came the outbreak of the new coronavirus, which is now classified as a pandemic. A global plague.

On Monday, the doors of the health centers began to be locked. As of today, 19 March, everyone who lives in Jämtland County can contact a district nurse via 1177 with the help of their bank ID.

– It has gone incredibly fast. A week ago, I was commissioned to create a fast track for a digital channel available to all citizens, says Anna Granevärn. ”
