Future health - digital transformation

Reference number
Coordinator STIFTELSEN INSTITUTET FÖR FRAMTIDSSTUDIER - Institutet för framtidsstudier
Funding from Vinnova SEK 1 580 625
Project duration April 2016 - March 2017
Status Completed
Venture Digital health

Purpose and goal

Swedish healthcare is experiencing problems regarding the lightest and most difficult patients, problems that can be solved with digital decision support, but it requires major changes. The project aimed at identifying the need for change with facts, descriptions and ideas, as well as inspiring action by demonstrating the potential of a changed system.

Expected results and effects

The project involved people who work in different ways with or experience digitalization and care. They pointed out in a report the possibilities of digitizing care, how it could happen and what impedes development, as well as concrete suggestions on what needs to be done. The report has spread widely in the target group, including at a well-attended seminar that gathered the industry. Some of the ideas were illustrated in a feature film that appears to be used in internal meetings and the message has been repeated at a number of seminars and meetings after the end of the project period.

Planned approach and implementation

The project period was divided into four partially parallel parts; one for workshops where the content of the report was discussed and coordinated; one for text and graph production; one for the production of the film "Care - About the Future" and the card game "Change game. The game about future care and care"; as well as an all-inclusive content is launched and communicated through seminars and meetings. The last of these has continued after the end of the project.

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