Purpose and goal

In PreTest, a prehospital test bed supporting healthcare digitization will be established. The aim is to create unique opportunities for both research, development and testing of new technologies as well as methods and care processes that are difficult or inappropriate to do in clinical operative reality.

Expected results and effects

The project will result in an established mobile prehospital test bed with permanent equipment for simulation and data collection. In addition, a plug & play e-health test platform corresponding to "Framtidens Vårdinformationsmiljö" (FVM) will be integrated. Proposals for the long-term management and development of the test bed after project closure should be provided. Expected effects are improved conditions for research, development and innovation in the prehospital area.

Planned approach and implementation

The project is coordinated by the Prehospital ICT Arena (PICTA) at Lindholmen Science Park and consists of the development of the physical test environment (ambulance), adaptation of the IT test environment as well as pilot tests and demo of the test bed. In addition, the focus will be on regional and national marketing as well as long-term operation and funding of the test bed.
