Implementation of information-driven healthcare through AI application

The project is a sub-project in a larger collaboration project financed by Vinnova with the aim of developing Swedish healthcare to become more information-driven, individually adapted and scalable through AI application.

Healthcare is facing major challenges that cannot be solved solely through more resources or by individual actors. How we use data and information in healthcare will play an important role in solving several of healthcare's challenges. It will require both new working methods and collaborations. Region Halland and Halmstad University are far ahead with the work in information-driven care, which has also attracted national as well as international interest.

Within the framework of the collaboration project, this sub-project is carried out, with the aim of investigating stakeholders' needs, requirements and preferences for a successful implementation of AI technology in healthcare. We will study whether the implementation of AI technology has special implementation requirements that require specific and/or additional considerations in relation to established implementation models. The sub-project will investigate how existing knowledge from implementation research can be mobilized to support practice and increase the success of AI implementation initiatives.
