Introduction
I hold a PhD in Human-Computer Interaction from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm. I have a background in Media Informatics (B.Sc., M.Sc.) and worked for 8 years in healthcare as a physician’s assistant (GP, Urology). I am interested in qualitative research, HCI, eHealth, patient accessible electronic health records, value sensitive design, participatory approaches.

Background: Uppsala County in Sweden launched an eHealth patient portal in 2012, which allows patients to access their medical records over the Internet. However, the launch of the portal was critically debated in the media. The professionals were strongly skeptical, and one reason was possible negative effects on their work environment. This study...

Open access: http://www.jmir.org/2018/1/e11/ Background: Roles in the doctor-patient relationship are changing and patient participation in health care is increasingly emphasized. Electronic health (eHealth) services such as patient accessible electronic health records (PAEHRs) have been implemented to support patient participation. Little is know...
Article
Full-text available
This article proposes the use of technological frames (TF) as an analytical tool to support the investigations within value sensitive design. TF can help to identify values that are consistent or conflicting within and between stakeholders, which is exemplified with a case of patient accessible electronic health records in Sweden. The article concl...
Thesis
Full-text available
Healthcare systems worldwide face organisational and financial challenges due to increasing number of people with chronic conditions, increasing costs, and an ageing population. eHealth services have the potential to address some of these challenges, for example, by supporting patients who are engaged in self-care, improving quality of care, and red...
Conference Paper
The involvement of stakeholders is crucial when designing IT in highly complex application domains, such as health-care. Stakeholder relationships are complex and can include strongly conflicting needs and value tensions. In this case study, we investigate the different perspectives of patients and physicians related to Patient Accessible Electroni...

Im Jahr 2012 startete die Provinz Uppsala in Schweden den eHealth-Dienst Journalen, der es Patienten ermöglicht, über das Internet auf ihre elektronischen Gesundheitsakten zuzugreifen. Die Einführung des Dienstes wurde von medizinischen Fachkräften stark kritisiert und in den schwedischen Medien heftig diskutiert, während Patienten dem Dienst hinge...

Background: Internationally, there is a movement toward providing patients a Web-based access to their electronic health records (EHRs). In Sweden, Region Uppsala was the first to introduce patient-accessible EHRs (PAEHRs) in 2012. By the summer of 2016, 17 of 21 county councils had given citizens Web-based access to their medical information. Stud...
Article
Full-text available
The workshop presented in this pre-conference report was conducted at the 2018 Uppsala Health Summit "Care for Cancer". In high-income settings, many types of cancer are nowadays curable, or treatable in a way that they can be considered as a chronic rather than a fatal disease. Nevertheless, the number of patients being diagnosed with cancer eve...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Today, numerous data sources are available to healthcare professionals for diagnosing and treating cancer, but there are also data captured by patients, e.g. related to daily progress, which are not readily accessible to healthcare. In this workshop, we will use the critical incidents technique to inspire participants to elaborate on the need of us...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is a melting pot of different theories and methods. The combination of qualitative and quantitative methods in studies is still quite rare, but has become more and more common. In this paper we present our experiences from doing a combination of quantitative and qualitative analysis to shed some light on patient acc...

Conference Paper
Demands for technological solutions to address the variety of problems in healthcare have increased. The design of eHealth is challenging due to e.g. the complexity of the domain and the multitude of stakeholders involved. We describe a workshop method based on Critical Incidents that can be used to reflect on, and critically analyze, different exp...
Conference Paper
The number of eHealth services for patients and relatives is rapidly increasing as many countries are launching such services as a means to manage an ageing population, to increase efficiency in healthcare, and to empower patients. However, design and deployment of eHealth services for patients is challenging due to the complex setting and the mult...

Patients' use of eHealth services and other online sources to identify medical information has become increasingly popular. For many patients the Web is an important source where they can find information and advice about symptoms and treatments. The majority of patients sees the information on the Web as reliable and uses it to influence their hea...
Conference Paper

Patients can now access their Electronic Health Records (EHR) online, which is aimed to increase patient empowerment. The medical professionals reacted strongly on patients accessing the medical records. Main concerns were related to quality of care, t...
Thesis
Full-text available
This thesis investigates expectations of and experiences with eHealth services that allow users access to their health information. Although eHealth services are endorsed by many politicians and patients, they are met with strong resistance by health care professionals. Lacking this support hinders the uptake of the full potential of the service, e...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Gathering health-related data is quite easy, but visualizing them in a meaningful way remains challenging, especially when the application domain is very complex. Research suggests that empathy can facilitate the design process and that narratives can help to create an empathic encounter between designers and the prospective users. We conducted an...
Conference Paper

The ability of individuals to access and use their online medical records serves as one of the cornerstones of national efforts to increase patient empowerment and improve health outcomes. However, the launch of online medical records in Uppsala County, Sweden, has been criticized by the medical profession and the local doctors’ union. The aim of t...
