Some info:

E-health Vestland will start in 2020, in that the two projects in Vestland that are part of the National Welfare Technology project, went together for a joint application to the County Governor of Vestland for renewal funds for 2020.

The project is a collaboration between municipalities in Vestland county, Høgskulen på Vestlandet, Vestlandsforsking / IT forum vest, Helse Vest IKT, Utviklingssenter for sjukeheimar og heimetenester Vestland Sogn og Fjordane og Hordaland. The project is supported by the County Governor of Western Norway in 2020, and the project is planned until 2025.

The municipalities and the professional environment in Western Norway have a good collaboration, and the goal is for us to work together, supplement, secure and further develop professional activities and look at new areas such as digital services for people with disabilities and digital home follow-up. The goal is to include all municipalities in Vestland county in the project in the long term.

A total of 33 municipalities in Vestland county are involved in the project today, where Sunnfjord municipality is the host municipality and project owner v / ass. municipal director Lise Mari Haugen. Vestlandsprosjektet region Hordaland and welfare technology project region Sogn og Fjordane are intended to continue with cooperation, further development and operation of welfare technology in the region, with E-helse Vestland as the unifying umbrella in Vestland county.
