My Care Pathways
The project "My Care Pathways" strives towards the vision to enable citizens to track their health by providing them online access to past history, current state and prospective future events regarding their personal care pathways.
In this context, we define "personal care pathway" as the chain of a patient's past health events in combination with a prospective possible critical path of future events. We believe that an open platform for e-health innovation is necessary to make more efficient use of the creativity of the mobile industry and application developers outside traditional health IT vendors.
The objectives of the project are:
- To create new mobile citizens' services that allow patients to follow, own and manage their care process related information. Three health conditions are in focus: stroke, lung cancer and hip surgery.
- To develop methods, guidelines and business models that can encourage the formation of strategic alliances to develop further care pathways and ancillary services. We want to achieve this in co-production between research, public sector, industry and patient organizations.
- To provide an open platform and to implement a Software Development Kit (SDK) with web services for software developers to be able to design applications that are interoperable with current health information systems through the platform "Mina vårdkontakter", see link below.
Project manager: Nina Lundberg, SLL. The project is supported by 10 millions SEK from VINNOVA within the call 'Challenge-driven innovation'. HIC will lead the research components within the project.
