MedCom is a co-operative venture between authorities, organisations and private firms linked to the Danish healthcare sector. The objective of MedCom is to contribute to the development, testing, dissemination and quality assurance of electronic communication and information in the healthcare sector with a view to supporting good patient progression

MedCom is financed by the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Social Affairs, Danish National Board of Health, Danish Regions, Copenhagen Hospital Corporation, Association of Local Authorities in Denmark and the Danish Pharmaceutical Association. Denmark is one of the leading countries in Europe when it comes to electronic communication in the healthcare sector. The success is due to the establishment of the Danish Health Data Network, which was established and is maintained by MedCom. Today the Network forms an integral part of the everyday work of the Danish healthcare sector, since the dissemination and use of it has risen sharply since it was established.
