Follow up with Norway

Today we are in Norway for a meeting with the international department at Oslo University Hospital, Helse Sør-Øst. Sahlgrenska I.C. has an agreement with all the regional health care authorities in Norway. Over the years, this collaboration has made it possible for many norwegian patients to receive higly specialized care at Sahlgrenska University Hospital in medical areas where the experience is limited in Norway. Multivisceral transplantation surgeries, bone anchored amputation prosthesis and craniofacial surgeries are a few examples of the treatments offered.

All collaborations need to be evaluated from time to time to ensure that they live up to the high quality standards that both parties have. This is the aim with the visit today. We look forward to having a good discussion about the collaboration so far and how it can be evolved going forward.

Sahlgrenska's Director Barbro Fridén leader of the year

The business news magazine Affärsvärlden has appointed Barbro Fridén, Director of Sahlgrenska University Hospital, leader of the year.

Enthusiasm, courage and dedication characterizes her leadership, according to the jury. A lot has happend since she took office 2012. Throughout these years she has been advocating the implementation of a value based approach with a patient centred focus. It is now underway, but we have to await the outcome of this approach as more clinics at Sahlgrenska University Hospital adopt the model. Regardless, it is already an admirable achievement considering the size and complexity of the organization.

Congratulations Barbro, Sahlgrenska University Hospital and Region Västra Götaland! We look forward to keep on working closely to ensure that Sahlgrenska University Hospital continues to be renowned internationally for it’s world class research and development within highly specialized care.

Almedalen wrap-up: 2015’s health care buzz

What you measure is what you get

Sweden has the best health care in the world. A well-known statement, but is it really true? Yes and no according to a newly published report ”Why compare when we know that we are best?” by Forum for Health policy.

There is no doubt that Sweden does rank high internationally. Quality, low costs, unique registries are just a few of many areas where the country gets the highest scores. But other comparisons also highlight the main challenges; the access to good health care depends on where you live, the flaws in service level and patient safety.
