Purpose and goal

The project examines how the use of new innovations, combined with changing information flows and methods can facilitate identification of possibly resulting outbreaks of infectious diseases. The prototype for the collection of information has been developed. It have been used for direct reporting from businesses such as kindergartens and in parallel for retrieval of information from the 1177 vårdguiden for presentation of medical officers in order to provide a basis for a decision on action regarding infection risks. Three workshops have been conducted with the project partners.

Expected results and effects

The project has resulted in increased understanding of how identifiers for risk of infection can be obtained, through direct reporting from for schools. During the test along with kindergartens and doctors has on some occasions suspicious outbreaks have been identified. In these cases, the information led to the infectious diseases Center been able to follow each preschool actively and been able to take a position on the need for in-depth analysis and measures. This is the basis how collaboration between actors can be designed in terms of information flow as well as working methods.

Planned approach and implementation

The concept of the project was to conduct two workshops with project partners. This was carried out and furthermore conducted another workshop on questions about how privacy can be managed. Furthermore, a prototype developed for the input of absences and for analysis of reported data. The prototype has been tested both in kindergartens and partly by the county medical officer. One issue that was raised during this project was the opportunity to develop an app where parents themselves can report absences which could even give parent´s health status.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
