Swedish Government Increases Efforts to Be a World Leader in e-Health by 2025

Country Correspondent: Roosa Tikkanen

The National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen) is tasked with ensuring that the government’s 2016 vision to be the world’s best in e-health by 2025 is met. For 2018, the department has received funding for a range of initiatives, including semantic standardization that aims to ensure consistent use of terminology throughout the health care sector and better integration between physical and dental health care sectors. Meanwhile, the eHealth Agency has been allocated additional funds toward ensuring that electronic prescription data is transferable across European Union countries, according to the 2011 European Union Directive on patients’ rights in cross-border health care.
