Purpose and goal
The purpose of the HIPPA project is to reduce adverse events and thereby reduce patient suffering as well as the costs for adverse events in Sweden. We have created a consortium of partners with key staff to implement the project and secured financing. We have identified the services, tools, software, and standards needed to implement the project. We have also developed a draft agreement governing the intellectual property rights of the parties in the consortium. We have developed a project plan for the joint project.
Results and expected effects
We have built up a consortium based on the participants in the initial project, but we have also identified new players who have been added the consortium. We have found new angles on how to tackle the problem of improving patient safety, in particular the proposal that in addition to the detection and measurement of adverse events also to make prediction to warn of adverse event risks at the individual level. Patents searches yielded positive results because there seems to be room to seek new patents. The market for the HI system also seems larger than expected.
Approach and implementation
During the project, we have contacted a large number of stakeholders, both caregivers and service providers, many of which participated in the project workshops. Some of them are now also included in the consortium and in a reference group. At the workshops, we discussed requirements for an HI system and its services and how these could be designed and adapted to existing standards and service platforms. These discussions have been a basis for the final report. In the final report, we have also made an analysis based on literature studies.
