More about the book

A Handbook for Information-Driven Healthcare is based on the experiences of healthcare providers who have already gone through this process and are implementing AI support in clinical practice. Thanks to these insights, other stakeholders do not have to reinvent the wheel but can learn from those who have gone ahead and are leading the way!

The handbook is part of AI Sweden's sector initiative, Informationdriven healthcare. The goal is to transform Swedish healthcare to offer more information-driven, personalized, and scalable care with the support of AI. The result is more efficient healthcare resources and improved working conditions for healthcare professionals, ultimately leading to better health for residents.

The handbook describes solutions that have proven to work in clinical practice and demonstrates how to handle relevant areas such as legal regulations, personal privacy, leadership, data management, and more.
