Information is an enormously powerful tool, if we use it well. Region Halland knows this and have an aggressive strategy for their use of information. Their initiatives within Business Intelligence (BI) applies not only to their internal information but should ultimately also create conditions to provide better information and service to the region’s citizens.
Region Halland’s initiative to allow BI to play a central role in improving health care is in line with several other projects both in Sweden and internationally. As an example, one of the projects is operated along with a world-class university, with Key Performance Indicators within health care in focus. It is a win-win situation to utilize the power of information!
