Identifying bottlenecks for better public health

This project seeks to improve public health in Kalmar by combining existing data from different parts of the organisation, identifying bottlenecks and testing new working methods to clear them. The aim is to combine data from dental care, healthcare and data on socio-economic factors in different geographic areas to determine which measures could be taken to achieve better results. 

The focus is on individuals or groups of individuals who are in the greatest need of help and will most benefit from measures. This means also focusing on people who are not in touch with the care system at all. 

The institute is providing support in the digitization and analysis work. Anders Ekholm serves as guidance support for data-driven development work.
