It is now the third year that HealthTech Nordic, Sahlgrenska Science Park, Vitalis and Cerner carry out the eHealth Award initiative. The goal is to pay attention to digital innovations in health that exist in Sweden today, as they can contribute to more efficient and safe care processes as well as more committed patients.

Earlier and better care
Common to the three finalists is that they put the patient in focus. With the help of artificial intelligence (AI), they contribute to solving extensive global problems

Osteoporosis affects 50 % of all women and 25 % of men, but this can be detected and prevented in a timely manner through a regular dental X-ray. Almost half of Sweden’s population has at least one chronic disease. Two of the finalists’ solutions focus on this large group of patients through modern technology.

This year’s finalists:

– Boneprox

– Cross Technology Solutions

The winner will be presented during the opening ceremony of Vitalis, the largest eHealth meeting in the Nordic countries, in Gothenburg on May 21.
