During the 37th general annual meeting of the Belgian Haematology Society, Prof. Koen Kas, (University Hospital Ghent, Ghent, Belgium) provided some insights into the future of healthcare. In this future, hospital care will increasingly be substituted for home care in which patients will be monitored and treated 24/7 within the comfort of their home. In this way, healthcare can be brought to the patient anywhere, at any time. The first teleconsultation took place in 1924 (Teleheath 1924) and was seen as a revolutionary way to bring healthcare to the people.1 Early in 2020, the number of teleconsultations increased enormously as a result of the SARS-Cov-2 pandemic. However, the use of teleconsultations decreased again in the second half of the year in parallel with an improvement in the pandemic situation. It has now reached a new equilibrium: there are still more teleconsultations than before the COVID-19 pandemic, but less than during its peak (Figure 1).2 Nowadays, still 62% of patients feel that teleconsultations should remain an exception. However, with the emergence of new technological developments this perception is rapidly changing.3
