Virtual study tour

This site presents a virtual study tour of digital health in Norway. These insights were collected and curated from 2021 to 2024.

You will find information, web articles and videos with examples of the digitalisation of healthcare services in different parts of Norway. We have talked to researchers at universities and hospitals about the ways technological tools and digital home care change workflows in health systems. It can improve how support and care is being delivered to citizens, ensuring a more personalised and holistic approach. Government directorates share some strategic roadmaps for health innovation. They also discuss how the health services can benefit from using artificial intelligence to improve prevention, prediction, diagnosis and treatment.

The knowledge products are created as part of a project where we collaborate with the Ministry of Health in Poland: Tackling social inequalities in health with the use of e-health and telemedicine solutions.

The project is funded by Norway grants.

Learning from each other

People must be trained in using digital technology in care

It is urgent that we create societies that are good for everyone to live in. People are now being trained for new health technology jobs. These professions of the future hardly exist yet, but are already important.


Technology can lead to inclusion, but also exclusion

As the world around us becomes more digital, we often hear about how technology can be used to increase inclusion. However, according to Margunn Aanestad, professor in e-health at the University of Agder, technology can also increase exclusion. A report from the Norwegian Institute for Adult Learning showed that roughly 600 000 Norwegians are non-digital, and at risk of being excluded from the digital society.
