Reliable information, accessible and supportive digital services

A late start
The progress made in building health and wellbeing related information management, digital services and information systems has not been as swift as the progress made in building national, regional and local healthcare services. However, digital services offer significant potential as a tool for promoting health and wellbeing and for preventive action.
Areas in need of development include: 1) making digital services reliable and easy to find for ordinary people and for professionals 2) strengthening digital inclusion 3) developing information management and digitalisation in cooperation with national, regional and local players.
