The purpose of the DOME consortium is to build knowledge about the implementation and use of eHealth services and is based on studies of e-health projects. We do research in cooperation with the parties involved in the establishment of Online Patient Records in Sweden.
DOME is working closely with the national deployment of Online Patient Records as well as with documenting experiences gained from Region Uppsala that gave all patients access to their own medical records in in November 2012.
A specific goal of the research is to create a better basis for future introduction of eHealth services. The consortium therefore aims at developing recommendations for the introduction of new or improved e-health services in the healthcare system. Experiences made in DOME will be disseminated through all available channels.
DOME is a collaborative consortium between Karlstad University, the Royal Institute of Technology, University of Lund, University of Skövde, Uppsala University, and Örebro University. Starting off as one research project, we know have several ongoing projects with different leaders. Since 2020, we also have extensive international collaboration with project partners in Finland, Norway, Estonia and the USA.
