Together with Stockholms Läns Landsting, Karolinska Institutet, and Alkit Communications AB, we have submitted a project proposal to Vinnova on business models in health care.
A major challenge in Swedish health care is to ensure quality and safety in health care processes shared between several care providers. Addressing this challenge will require a thorough understanding of the relationships between strategy and operational processes, which can be described by means of business models. The purpose of the project is to develop, describe and visualize a number of business models for cooperation and interoperability using e-services in health care. The business models will contribute to effective and efficient interoperability by clarifying the relationships between organizational strategy, primary and support processes, and technological infrastructure in terms of e-services. The business models will describe how health care is produced, the actors participating in this production, the value created for patients, and forms for financing. The resulting models can be used by politicians, care providers, and industry in order to create novel health care networks, innovative e-services, and alternative work organizations. The project is a cooperation between Stockholms Läns Landsting, Karolinska Institutet, Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan, and Alkit Communications AB.
