Heljä Lundgrén-Laine, RN, MNSc, PhD, Post doc -researcher

The purpose is to determine the content, the source and the presentation format of important information, as well as quality indicators that are valid in health service production. Simultaneously, the project explores the needs and possibilities of new technology solutions in strategic and operative management in a new type of health service delivery and in decision-making related to patients and nursing staff. As a result different actors are offered relevant information depending on their position. Individuality is acknowledged by combining the patient’s personal health situation with general practices.
