Sahlgrenska will be key in usability evaluation and improvements, in tool validation and will be the place where the solution will be piloted and evaluated. Predicare will contribute with RETTS algorithms, application development, predictive process modelling and will drive the work of defining best practices. Chalmers University of Technology will lead the development of the dashboard and analytics for the emergency department based on historical data.
