Welcome to the fjord party: co-creating the Norwegian health service

Session type:
Lightning Talks

Session duration:
10 minutes

Presented by:

Asgeir Dybvig

The Norwegian Directorate of eHealth

About this Lightning Talks

Norway has one of the world's most well-developed public health care systems. The last 20 years, life in Norway has been a carefree fjord party, sheltered from the economic turmoils and social uncertainties affecting the rest of the world. But an aging population along with an expected decline in oil revenue means that a systemic transformation is called for.

An important piece in this is the development of a national digital platform to engage, involve and empower citizens to co-create health together with the public services. The aim of this session is to give a brief update on the current status, goals, threats and opportunities of this endeavour.
