    Leap for Life is a new innovation centre for information driven care. It is a joint initiative in the county of Halland for a collaborative effort in future healthcare between Halmstad University, Region Halland, all municipalities in Halland and the region’s business sector.

    Our society and the healthcare system are facing a number of great challenges. Pandemics, an aging population and fewer caring hands require new solutions in order to maintain good healthcare. By using artificial intelligence (AI) to draw conclusions about collected health data, care givers and hospital managements can make better informed decisions and care can be even more individualised. The concept is called information driven care and is the focus of the new innovation centre Leap for Life.

    “We need to work together in order to solve the healthcare challenges. With Leap for Life, we gather partners to collaborate, enable innovation and act as the driving force for change within healthcare – regionally, nationally and internationally”, says Anne-Christine Hertz, Manager for Leap for Life.

    Gathers the necessary competences
    Doctor in a hospital environmentLeap for Life is a development and renewal of the Centre for Health Technology Halland (HCH) which started in 2009. Just like HCH, Leap for Life is co-owned by a number of stakeholders in the county of Halland in Sweden: Halmstad University*, Region Halland** and the six municipalities in Halland***. Leap for Life is hosted by Halmstad University. The collaboration between academy, the business and public sectors is central to Leap for Life, just as it has been for HCH.

    “Leap for Life gathers the necessary ecosystem of competences – care development, business development and research – that are needed for Halland’s unique venture in information driven care. Halland has the conditions required for taking the step towards our future healthcare”, says Magnus Clarin, Dean of the School of Information Technology at Halmstad University.
