About HIC

The Health Informatics Centre (HIC) performs research in the areas of clinical decision making, integrated patient-centred information systems for collaborative care and patient e-services with special focus on usability.

Our aim is to perform needs driven research and to enhance clinical practice through informatics, delivering new evidence-based knowledge into patient care, prevention and self-management.

We systematically use knowledge about care processes, information flows in health and social care, patients’ information and communication needs, usability and health informatics standards to develop new methods and tools. These are evaluated to create new knowledge about how to best design and implement eHealth to create benefits for both patients and healthcare professionals.

We apply a sociotechnical approach, combining technical and methodological research with research on how implementation and use of eHealth affects roles, relationships and tasks for patients and healthcare professionals.

HIC includes the MINT team which focuses on design science research and medical education.
