Digital health services : A systematic literature review of the opportunities to increase access to primary care (English)
Abstract [sv]

Inledning: Primärvården i Sverige är i behov av förändring då dess struktur och resursfördelning behöver anpassas för att klara av att möta de framtida utmaningar som primärvården står inför med en befolkning som lever allt längre, kroniska sjukdomar samt multisjuka, där en möjlig lösning skulle kunna tänkas vara digitalisering av primärvården.  Syfte: Det här examensarbetet syftar till att undersöka digitala vårdcentralers möjligheter att bidra till en förbättrad tillgänglighet till primärvården i Sverige. Metod: En systematisk litteraturstudie har genomförts i flera olika databaser, där både kvalitativa och kvantitativa studier har inkluderats i studien. Resultat: Ur ett patientperspektiv rapporterade ett flertal studier en övergripande tillfredsställelse genom användning av digitala vårdbesök som ett alternativ till fysiskt besök på vårdcentral. Diskussion: Generellt ses digitala vårdcentraler som tillgängliggörare av vård för befolkningen, men det finns även osäkerheter som riskerar att påverka både patienter och skattemedel om resurserna används felaktigt och där de inte gör mest nytta.

Abstract [en]

Introduction: Primary care in Sweden is in need of change, and should recognize challenges related to structures of care, and use of resources, in order to adapt to future challenges faced by primary care. Sweden’s population is living longer, and population health will be increasingly affected by chronic diseases and people living with multiple illnesses. A possible solution could be the use of digitalization in primary care. Purpose: The purpose of this bachelor thesis is to investigate the possibility of digital healthcare providers to contribute to improved accessibility to primary care in Sweden. Method: A systematic literature study has been conducted through several different databases. Both qualitative and quantitative studies have been included in the study. Results: Findings suggest that there is overall patient satisfaction with digital healthcare visits as an alternative to physical visits to the healthcare center. Discussion: Generally speaking, digital care could be expanded but there are also uncertainties that may affect both patients and strain on resources. These issues need further exploring.
