We want to reward the innovations that empowers patients, increases outcomes and decreases the cost of healthcare.

The Nordic countries are renowned for ranking at the top of innovation scoreboards, and HealthTech is one of the most current investment areas. We want to help innovators to reach their market, so we can further develop healthcare together.

In 2017 Cerner initiated the Swedish eHealth Award, in partnership with Vitalis, Sahlgrenska Science Park and HealthTech Nordic, with the objective to accelerate innovations in healthcare. The previous winners- Coala Life, Kontigo Care and Cross Technology Solutions- have reached great success and are on interesting growth journeys.

2020 eHealth Award is being reinvented and now welcome innovations from all the Nordic countries to accept the challenge. eHealth Award offers a unique platform, including a global network and publicity in an exciting context. 

The jury is dynamic and insightful with long experience including representation from patients, healthcare professionals and the Nordic health tech community as well as the industry.

I am proud and excited of the broad engagement and eager for the launch of Nordic eHealth Award 2020.

Accept the challenge! Visit and follow the eHealth Award Facebook page to apply for the award and learn more!
