Line Silsand


Line Silsand is a PhD student in e-health, educated at UiT The Arctic University of Norway. In addition to a bachelor's degree in nursing, she has a practical pedagogical education and a master's degree in health sciences from 2010.

Line has extensive clinical experience as a registered nurse in different areas of health care. She also has a great deal of experience within lecturing as well as administrative tasks like coordination and professional development. In her thesis, she follows the development and implementation of structured electronic patient records (EPR) through the FIKS-program (Joint Implementation of Clinical Systems) in the Northern Norway Regional Health Authority. In her research she has looked at the consequences of the introduction of structured EPR both for cooperation between developers, health workers and clinical routines, and also organizational and administrative consequences of structured EPR. Line has worked at the Medical Clinic at the University Hospital of North Norway in parallel with her doctoral studies, and therefore retain close links to clinical practice. Since February 2016 she has worked part-time as an EPR adviser, with emphasis on the introduction of structured clinical information models (archetypes) in EPR.
