Neelie Kroes: “With mHealth alone, Europe could save €99 billion in healthcare a year in 2017″

Neelie Kroes Lets get rid of the waiting room

Neelie Kroes, Commissioner for the Digital Agenda for Europe, calls for an end of the waiting room. Meanwhile a NHS GP Practice posts this notice for Patients (HatTip: @kayewiggins) who are finding the one size fits all appointment booking system, rushed consultation and undocumented experience to much to cope with.

Please dont take it out on the reception staff when you cannot get an appointment

I think we can do a lot better and there is evidence that shows we can safely use clinically validated tools to extend the waiting room into the pocket of every Carer/Patient in a way that isn’t very different from the way that FinnAir started transforming the check-in process for passengers when they started taking it mobile back in 2001
