eHealth City Svendborg

eHealth City Svendborg is the first eHealth City focusing on user-driven innovation in the world! It is a brand new initiative taking citizen involvement to a new level in the development of health and care services for the future.

We need to ensure high quality in future health and wellbeing which is why Odense University Hospital, Svendborg Municipality and Public Intelligence have joined forces to develop and create innovation in and of the health sector based on the citizens’ experiences and current and future needs.

With the ambition to put the citizen at the centre of innovation, the project will take a closer look at specific neighborhoods in Svendborg. We will focus on these citizens’ contacts and experiences with the health care system and aim to get a better understanding of how the citizens wish to be involved in their own health. With this starting point, services and solutions will be identified, developed and tested in close collaboration with the citizens, health providers and companies to then be scaled up in Svendborg and other municipalities.

The project will initiate in October 2017.
