A well-functioning health system is one of the pillars of a modern welfare state. Health systems around the world are challenged by the divide between what is medically possible and what is economically sustainable. This places great demands on the sector, both at the macro and micro levels. The sector must be able to further develop specializations while ensuring that patients meet a coherent health service. Services must be made widely available even though a robust and appropriate specialist environment requires division of labour and specialization. The patient and quality of services shall be the priority of the future development of the health system. Simultaneously, efficient operations and new organisational and technological solutions shall ensure that this development occurs within given financial constraints.
