Telemedicine increasingly central, 7 billion from the recovery plan

After the pandemic, health care identifies the first place of care in the home, and not in the hospital. The health emergency of Covid-19 highlighted the fundamental role of telemedicine to rethink patient management starting from the territory, guaranteeing home care. In fact, when hospitals were converted for Covid treatment, telemedicine and teleconsultation, even with improvised means, made it possible to provide health services to chronic patients. Not surprisingly in the Recovery plan – known as the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (Pnrr) – the first item of expenditure, equal to 7 billion euros, is dedicated to “Proximity networks, structures and telemedicine for territorial health care”.
