About the eHealth Institute
The e-Health Institute at Linnaeus University acts for a sound, knowledge-based use of digital technology, well-suited for its purpose, within nursing and care. We work with knowledge on how the digital technology can increase patient participation in nursing and care and make it more secure and sustainable in the long term.
The e-Health Institute is a dynamic, interdisciplinary knowledge and learning environment that offers education and seminars within e-Health. We carry out research and evaluation projects with focus on user and citizen utility. We also offer single-subject courses and a master’s programme in e-Health.
The e-Health Institute has a broad research approach – with focus on the use of medicines and the introduction of digital technology and Big Data – and collaborates with one the foremost research environments at Linnaeus University, Linnaeus University Centre for Data Intensive Sciences and Applications (DISA).
