Teknologi i arbejdslivet

Technology in work life

Technology developed specifically for the health/socialcare area is termed “Welfare technology”. Welfare technology supports users – citizens, employees and relatives – in improving security, well-being and quality in relation to welfare benefits.

Welfare technology creates the possibility of meeting the needs for increased quality in spite of increasing challenges through lack of resources.

The gains from working with welfare technology include

  • Improved use of resources
  • Enhancement of working environment
  • Lower sickness absence 
  • Reduced attrition
  • Labour optimization
  • Time for the key job: care and nursing

Better quality

  • Higher degree of self-reliance
  • Higher life quality
  • Higher service quality
