Research groups and programmes at MMC

MMC carries out research to support science-based management practice in health care. Our vision is to address how resources in the form of competence, knowledge, material and other assets can best be used and developed to improve human health.

We work nationally, regionally and locally with authorities, health care providers and patient representatives as well as with educational and research institutions in medicine and health care, and serves as a conveyor of knowledge and research related support for change and development.

Research groups

Action though Information Management (AIM)

Action through Information Management (AIM) research group studies how the large amounts of data and information in health care can be transformed into knowledge and action that supports change and innovation. By using informatics, we can accelerate the process of generating new knowledge that reaches the caregiver and patient faster.
