Brazil and Sweden deem health as part of their ST&I strategies since it is a main concern in both countries. The planned actions for the coming years intend to carry out bilateral collaboration in RD&I by exchanging knowledge and best practices, implementation of new technologies, improvement of the conditions for healthcare, development of innovative solutions for the health sector, facilitation of the interaction, mobility and capacity building in the digital area as well as creation of opportunities for Brazilian and Swedish companies in the health sector.

Main area

The main topics to be explored in the bilateral cooperation considering the new approach to health, taking into account the development of ICT and AI tools. In this sense, the Health Subgroup will explore actions in:

  • Data sharing;
  • Artificial intelligence;
  • Digital/ distance care;
  • Biosensors;
  • Prevention of pediatric obesity;
  • Implementation and change management;
  • Innovation mechanisms;
  • Medical records;
  • Lifestyle, health and prevention;
  • Monitoring and care in the home;
  • Internet psychiatry

Project Approved

e-SHARE: In the Brazilian side the Embrapii Unit CEEI -UFCG and the startup PromptusMED, and in the Swedish side the Stockholm University and the startup ActaDig. The project also counts with the collaboration of the Intermunicipal Multimodal Consortium (CIM), the Chronic Renal Patients Association of Pará (ARTC-PA), and the Paraense Hemophilia Association (ASPAHC) in Brazil, and has received funding from VINNOVA and EMBRAPII-SEBRAE. The eSHARE project, an acronym for eID enabled Standardized and HArmonized health REcords management, brings together Research, Development and Technological Innovation (RD&I) to be the baseline for next generation medical records management. The project was launched in conjunction with efforts by private companies, regional governments, and academia. It is part of a broader work that the Multimodal Intermunicipal Consortium (CIM) began in 2022 for enabling, implementing, and accelerating the digital transformation of healthcare in their municipalities:

  • Understand the landscape – map how we are solving today's problems and tomorrow’s demands in healthcare systems
  • Identify the challenges and priorities – weigh up the need and feasibility for solving problems from a patient perspective
  • Investigate the today for shaping the tomorrow – explore the potential in technology and design e-services for transforming healthcare systems
  • Learn by doing – build a prototype to test our findings

As the project gathers qualified professionals from Brazil and Sweden, the findings from eSHARE can be tested with a prototype for electronic identification for health professionals. All findings will be documented in the pre-study phase and used in the technical development of an integrated and patient-centered healthcare records management solution.

The results of the eSHARE project aim to promote openness of the e-health ecosystem and to establish the baseline for long-term collaboration as it relates to developing impact innovation within medical records management.
