Sweden joined the GDHP in 2019

The Swedish eHealth Agency is a governmental agency under the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs. Our task is to lead and coordinate government e-health initiatives.

Our mission is to:

  • Lead, drive and work in partnership
    One of our most important tasks is to lead the development of e-health in Sweden. We focus on finding solutions to problems and on our drive to establish better information-sharing within health and social care.
  • Create structures and monitor quality
    We develop and ensure the quality of the infrastructure that links providers of health and medical services with residents. This includes managing electronic prescriptions in Sweden. Our work promotes the efficient and secure handling of pharmaceutical information. We gather and supply statistics about pharmaceutical sales from pharmacies, retailers and wholesalers.
  • Provide services
    We also provide services and products to facilitate the work of care and health services and pharmacies as well as e-services for private individuals
