The population is ageing, and we are having higher expectations. Within the constraints of resources, it is difficult to balance desires and possibilities. The shortage of workforce will give us limits in how to solve the work tasks.

Our goal is to create a sustainable healthcare which is focusing on patient’s needs. A sustainable healthcare takes advantage of the possibilities which lies in technology, uses and further develop the competence to the healthcare workers, and solves tasks efficiently. 

Together we will:

  • Develop knowledge and services to improve the health of the citizens.
  • Test and implement health technology solutions.
  • Provide excellent teaching by using simulation methodology.
  • Develop and strengthen health-related industry.
  • Create gathering places for discussions, cooperation and sharing of experiences.
