The project follows up experiences of participants and priorities of the municipalities established during earlier work and projects. Relevant are the pre project done by the IT-forum health workgroup in 1996 and the national Elin-k project and the local pilot project on electronic messaging between a few local 1.line medical service and the local hospital. The County and the local communities sponsor the project.
The action plan has tree central elements in addition to project management:
