Artificial intelligence can play a key role in the transformation of healthcare systems and enable patients to be more actively involved in their healthcare together with their healthcare professionals.

The main goals for the initiative are:

  • To identify barriers and enablers for integration and national implementation 
  • To investigate how privacy-preserving AI and data-driven insights can support current healthcare practices 
  • To evaluate ethical and legal implications, and find pathways to successful implementation 

The core project team consists of AI Sweden and 

The project runs from 2019 to 2024.
