Participatory eHealth & Health data Research Group (PeHR)
Our group supports the continuous transformation of healthcare in Sweden and internationally through participatory research onf eHealth and health data. We work at the intersection of health sciences, implementation science, pre-clinical research, health informatics, and action research. Our work includes evaluation of ethical, legal and social consequences of eHealth tools in collaboration with all stakeholders: patients, informal caregivers, healthcare professionals, researchers, healthcare organisations, industry, policymakers, and governmental authorities.
The perspectives of patients and informal caregivers is key to our research, so we support both patient-driven innovation and research as essential components to improve health and well-being.
The research group is part of Medtech Science & Innovation, a collaboration centre within medical technology between Uppsala University and the University Hospital.
