All projects are done in cooperation with, or closely connected to, the Norwegian Centre for TelemedicineUniversity Hospital of North Norway.

The research in the Medical informatics & telemedicine group mainly focuses on:

  • Integrated Medical Sensors include research on sensors monitoring vital health parameters (e.g. ECG, blood glucose) and sensors for motivational health purposes (e.g. physical activity and eating habits). The sensors and sensor-based systems use both wearable and stationary sensors. In addition, interpretation of sensor data is addressed.
  • Health Terminals for Personalized Health Care is a growing area in the health sector. Research contributions from this area include: Tools and procedures for improved regulation of diabetic patients, and tools and procedures for monitoring and control of patients with chronic diseases.
  • Health Intelligence is defined as use and development of knowledge to improve the health of the population. In this research area, we focus on disease surveillance systems and how such systems can be used for the benefit of different patient groups. Furthermore, we address the development of methods for detection of deviations in spatio-temporal patterns of syndromic data, and develop models for spreads of infectious and non-infectious diseases for the purpose of prediction.
