A warm welcome to Innovation Jam, a recurring and highly appreciated lunch event hosted by Leap for Life. Listen to interesting guests, discuss challenges and possibilities in health and social care while you also broaden your network and gain new knowledge.
Moderated by Rebecca Sellergren this will be a relaxed discussion where you as a listener also can participate. In the October Jam our guests are Farzaneh (Kobra) Etminani, Associate Professor at Halmstad University and Niklas Sundler, Technology Innovation Director på Ramsay Santé Innovation Hub.
The project that will be talked about is called PadAI, which stands for Participatory and information driven anxiety/depression healthcare journeys.
Availability of health-related data, the roles that patients play in their own healthcare journeys, and the availability and use of digital healthcare enable new ways to improve mental healthcare by designing, developing and implementing using information-driven technologies early in the process. The aim of this project is to explore various digital information-driven solutions to proactively detect the young adults with anxiety/depression in their mental healthcare journeys.
