Ordered introduction of digital services and products in the healthcare sector

Helping to achieve the vision that Sweden will be a world-leader in e-health 2025.

This 2015-2016 pilot project study conducted by Uppsala BIO together with Stockholm Science City, Kista Science City, Uminova Innovation and others was transferred to a regular project in 2017. Uppsala BIO now works together with the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SKL), Region Norrbotten, Stockholm Science City and key actors to create clear processes that will help small and medium-sized businesses implement digital tools in health care.

The project will contribute to the vision that Sweden will be a world-leader in e-health 2025, to healthcare development in general and to the increased growth of SMEs. Uppsala University Hospital / Region Uppsala (via the Innovation Akademiska test-bed) is one of the key players in the project, whose goal is that SMEs should be able to test the framework and procedures now being developed at Region Uppsala during 2018-2019.
