The five pillars of Swedish healthcare excellence



Healthcare in Skåne is outstanding because of collaboration among academic institutions, industries, and clinics. Every day in Skåne, research and clinical practice integrate and interact to push quality of healthcare forward.

For example,  Skåne University Hospital is among the three largest university hospitals in Sweden, offering unique expertise in comprehensive healthcare, medical training, and frontline research. Lund University has a long and vibrant history covering over 300 years of research and is today the largest university in Scandinavia and one of the top 100 in the world. Together, their close association allows for integrating groundbreaking research into medical services that support outstanding patient care in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

Research and clinical collaboration has enriched Skåne’s healthcare system for decades. Today a major regional focus, connected health – such as eHealth, Digital Health, mHealth, Telehealth, and Telecare – is an area where highly skilled companies collaborate with care providers and researchers to develop tools for a viable market. These tools help create completely new opportunities to deliver healthcare and health information, enhance the quality of healthcare provided, coordinate healthcare activities, improve patient quality of life, and contribute to increased patient participation, independence, and security.
