Information-driven healthcare

This strategic initiative supports Swedish healthcare organizations in developing AI solutions. The goal is to offer more information-driven, personalized, and scalable healthcare. It occurs in a close partnership between public, private, and academic healthcare parties.

Vision & how to get there

To meet important challenges in the health area, Vinnova supports five vision-driven innovation milieus. Information-driven healthcare is one of these. The program runs from 2019 to 2024. The vision is that Sweden will offer information-driven, personalized, and scalable healthcare through AI application.


Identify barriers and enablers for integration and national implementation of information-driven healthcare


Exploring how privacy-preserving AI and data-driven insights can support current healthcare practices


Evaluate ethical and legal implications and find pathways to successful implementation of information-driven healthcare

Increasing health data creates opportunities to address the challenges through more information-driven healthcare. The data gives us information and insights that can be leveraged for behavioral changes and patient benefits. By applying AI we can, among other things, get help with:

  • Identification of opportunities
  • Prioritisation of interventions
  • Evidence-based guidelines --> Monitor implementation at a population level
  • Prediction of healthcare events of interest
  • Prevention, care optimization

Collaboration is key

The core partners collaborate with a regional reference group with representatives from all of the country's 21 regions. As a project partner, you contribute to the AI solutions of the future, at the same time as gaining access to them.

Although we have previously focused on information-driven healthcare in our research, the start-up of the innovation milieu gave us a real boost through increased collaboration and networking with regions and companies in Sweden.

We also have a network open to AI strategists in all 21 public healthcare regions: the Region Reference Group for Information-Driven Healthcare (Regionreferensgruppen för Informationsdriven Vård). There, you can follow the results of our projects, share experiences from your initiatives, and exchange valuable insights.
