20 recommendations to improve the healthcare system in Denmark


Last year, the Parliament established an expert commission led by Søren Brostrøm (former director of the Danish Health Agency) to suggest possible solutions to the challenges faced by the healthcare system today. 

  • 20% of the treatments offered are unnecessary. There should be stricter guidelines for expensive and resource-intensive treatments with limited effects. 
  • Reduce the need for bureaucracy (documentation). 
  • Specialists should be able to work for several health institutions across Denmark (via video link). 
  • Further digitalization and automatization of the healthcare system to reduce bureaucracy and need for administration work. 
  • Further development of digital skills among healthcare staff to increase their usage of technological solutions. 
  • Open up education for healthcare and elderly care for young people in the European Union. Medically trained staff in other EU states should get authorization more easily.
