Information driven healthcare
Swedish health and medical care face major challenges that cannot solved merely by individual parties or by providing additional resources. How we use data and information in healthcare will play an important role for safer and more efficient care. It requires new ways of working and more collaboration.
The initial phase is being financed with SEK 10 million per year, of which 5 million come from Vinnova via the program for vision-driven health and an equal amount from the project participants. Within the innovation environment, regions and healthcare providers at the leading edge within AI can advance their own work an additional step, share their experience and establish conditions for implementation of solutions for other parties.
Region Halland and Halmstad University are leading within information-driven care, which has also piqued interest nationally and internationally. Halland's experience and solutions spread to Karolinska University Hospital, Sahlgrenska University Hospital and Region Örebro County in parallel with identification and promotion of new leading initiatives.
Cooperating in the initial phase are AI Innovation of Sweden, SKL, Region Halland, Halmstad University, and Innovationsplatsen, Karolinska University Hospital. The project will last for five years and active work to invite and identify new participants takes place continuously. From the very beginning, the Agency for Digital Governance (DIGG), Sahlgrenska University Hospital (Region Västra Götaland), Region Örebro County, Örebro University, Halmstad Municipality and Kungsbacka Municipality, among others, expressed interest in contributing and participating.
