Four jury members present themselves:
Emma Henriksson, chairman of the Greater Stockholm Diabetes Association, SSDF.
Emma is on the jury as a representative of the end user - people with diabetes and their relatives. She has extensive experience from politics, and has previously been a member of parliament for the Christian Democrats.
- As a representative of a patient organization, I hope to be able to contribute with the end user's perspective. I also hope that I can include the perspectives from many years in political decision-making and the networks I have in different parts of health care.
- The form of the competition is an exciting way to attract both additional knowledge and innovations that benefit patients in their health and daily life, says Emma Henriksson.
Per Englund, Innovation Leader, Region Stockholm. Per, who has worked as an innovation leader for eight years in the Stockholm region, especially represents the care provider's perspective in the jury.
- I hope to be able to contribute with deep competence about the needs of the care providers. Winter is extremely exciting as we break new ground by creating a new approach to patient data. The amount of data mixes the data of the individual and the care, which creates completely new conditions, says Per Englund.
Karolina Antonov, Head of Analysis at the industry association The researching pharmaceutical companies, LiF. Karolina especially represents the business perspective in the jury.
- I hope to be able to contribute with my knowledge of the business community's need to be able to use health data in research, development of products and services and for these to be implemented.
- Winter can hopefully show a clear way forward in the use of health data and that it will be useful for policy development, says Karolina Antonov.
Sara Lidbaum, The Swedish Post and Telecom Agency and the Digitization Council. Sara contributes with the broader perspective around the entire society's digitalisation in the jury work.
- Above all, I can contribute with experiences from digitalisation linked to societal transformation. I have also gained a lot of insights about digitalisation in health care from my work in the Digitalisation Council, says Sara Lidbaum.
