2017 Nordic

How to get from A to B when it comes to using data as a resource - improving efficiency and quality in the care sector.

This autumn's Nordic Community Workshop at WOHIT will be a follow-up on our topic from eHealth Week in Amsterdam “Cost efficiency in the care sector – data as a resource” where it was widely agreed that through data sharing and cross national collaboration, we could get further both in regard to research and treatment of the patient. However, it was also agreed that we were not quite there where this collaboration was possible, and our dedicated Nordic Community members therefore decided to act upon this! Six issues were identified as the main barriers to collaboration and those much tackled.
