  23. 23. Q& A Session © DOLMEN 2010
  24. 24. Q& A Session Issue 1: Connected Health – a fragmented market Answers: • To do with standards ‐ there isn’t an awareness to have standards.  • There is a push pull situation.  • Ask a doctor to describe a hospital – they’ll say  how many beds it  has inside; “how many people I can get in, not how many people I  can help out there”. • Connected health will most likely be  a private market, at least in the  short term • Difficult to get people to talk to each other – standards are so wide © DOLMEN 2010
  25. 25. Q& A Session Issue 2: Who’s going to pay for health technology assessments? Answers: • Primary and secondary markets coming together but flow of data  must be managed (there are standards that are being driven) • A way to get in – through pharmaceutical funding. • To do with where is the value for money and who needs the  services? We need a deeper look into what’s going on out there – political will and strength to do it © DOLMEN 2010
  26. 26. Q& A Session Issue 3: Socialised Medicine  The state has taken over ‐ why don’t they give that back to where it  belongs? People want to keep older people healthier for longer in  their own environments Answers: • A financial decision needs to be made at a point in time, and this  must be balanced against a bigger financial decision. There is a cost  to all of this – people have to take that into account © DOLMEN 2010
  27. 27. Q& A Session Issue 4: EI and HSE Spending  Lots of money has been invested in connected health, telehealth. With  the HSE spending millions in this area, can’t EI encourage the HSE to  spend money differently to allow connected health be a test bed in  Ireland? Answers: • There is huge resistance – the “not invented here” problem • Need to try to get government bodies in general to spend money.  There are lots of politics but things are beginning to move • Could learn from other countries e.g. Germany – law that doctors  must submit invoices electronically, otherwise they don’t get paid.  These hard measures worked. © DOLMEN 2010
