AI Sweden at Vitalis

Join us on the 14-16th of May in Gothenburg at the conference Vitalis, focusing on e-health, welfare technology, and innovation. The conference consists of a program with speakers and panels as well as an exhibition. 

We are organizing a conference track about AI and hosting a booth. Take the opportunity to visit the booth (B06:49) and discuss the future of Sweden's health and welfare state. 

At the core of our mission is a firm conviction that artificial intelligence (AI) plays a pivotal role in enhancing the delivery of outstanding health services to the people of Sweden. Through the initiative 'Information-driven Healthcare', we support Swedish healthcare organizations in adopting AI. The goal is to offer more information-driven, personalized, and scalable healthcare. Furthermore, the collaboration between Unity Health Toronto and AI Sweden promises to bring significant Canadian insights to the Swedish healthcare system.

What are we meeting ahead?

Medical breakthroughs enable a larger proportion of the population to live longer and healthier lives. But this demographic shift also means that the number of patients with chronic diseases is growing and therefore increasing the demand for healthcare. Meanwhile, we see an upcoming shortage of staff. This creates a challenge that needs to be addressed.

Information-driven healthcare is to conduct and develop care as fact-based and patient-centered as possible by systematically utilizing, with the support of simple and advanced tools, all the data that exists – in one's operations and across organizational and subject boundaries – for increased effect of healthcare efforts both as a system and in the individual patient meeting.
