    Abstract

    The Danish health system, in common with most Western health systems, is grappling with the dual challenges of strengthening public health initiatives to prevent disease and providing care to a growing number of patients with chronic disease and comorbidity. A recent review of the system suggests that it generally provides high quality services and patient satisfaction with primary care and hospital services is high. Nevertheless, despite a raft of policies aimed at integrating health services, the Danish system still suffers from a lack of coordination of care. Although Denmark’s health information systems are widely admired, barriers to integration include organisational fragmentation, perverse financial incentives, and the absence of a single electronic medical record.
