A more indepth look into my past activities and present interests.
MyData Sweden Ideell förening (Not for Profit)
In 2008, I was employed by the SALAR and the Swedish Ministry of Health, as the Project Coordinator of the major EU eHealth Implementation project, epSOS, (Smart Open Services for European Patients). It was within the EU Policy Support, in the Competitive and Innovation Program for ICT (CIP ICT PSP). The budget was 37 Million Euro and I was the coordinator of 25 Member States, 50 Beneficiaries and an Industry team led by IHE Europe consisting of some 45 companies ranging from SME Business like Tiani Spirit, Forcare and Gnomon to GE Healthcare, Oracle, IBM and Cisco. Our main practical goal was to deliver a basic Patient Summary and ePrescription Pilot in Europe. Our strategic mission was to change the European HealthCare Model; we were to ensure the information follows the Patient. For more technical information on the openNCP/eHDSI and to follow the eHealth policy debate
In 2018 I decided to co-found MyData Sweden Ideelförening to support the goals of MyData Global and the Declaration. It is a new paradigm that will come to be, and change the Internet experience profoundly. More over it is a needed change to support the kind of world we all want to live in.
Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise
Glocalisation - IHE promotes the coordinated use of established standards such as ISO/HL7/DICOM/FHIR, ISO/13940/13606/openEHR and to address specific clinical needs in support of optimal patient Health outcomes. Systems developed in accordance with IHE communicate with one another better, are easier to implement and enable care providers to use information more effectively.
What led me to the epSOS work was the work with the Swedish National eHealth Infrastructure Services. For three years I worked as the IT Manager of Carelink a company managing the sourced IT Services and National Policies for Sweden’s centralized Healthcare solutions. This included the Operations as well as the Strategic Development of IT Services based on SOA principles. We worked with the National Patient Summary, a federated solution in Sweden serving all the national actors; 20 regions, 290 municipalities as well as several privately run health practices and hospitals. We also worked with several of the Swedish institutions such as the Swedish Social Insurance Agency and the Board of Health Care and Welfare. Carelink was merged with other initiatives and most of its artifacts may today be found at INERA.
