Health Informatics at IgMin Research | Medicine Group

Our mission is to foster interdisciplinary dialogue and accelerate the advancement of knowledge across a wide spectrum of scientific domains.


Health Informatics is the specialized field that combines healthcare and information technology to manage and enhance the collection, storage, analysis, and utilization of healthcare data. Health informaticians are experts in understanding the integration of technology and healthcare processes to improve patient care, streamline operations, and advance medical research. Their expertise spans from developing electronic health records (EHR) systems to implementing telemedicine solutions.

The study of health informatics involves in-depth knowledge of data management, health information systems, and the utilization of data-driven insights. Health informaticians utilize advanced software, data analytics, and interoperable systems to create efficient workflows, enhance clinical decision-making, and ensure the security and privacy of patient information. By bridging the gap between healthcare and technology, health informatics plays a pivotal role in transforming healthcare delivery.

Wishful Thinking or Valuable Forecasts? The Value of Policy Rate Predictions in Sweden
by Åsa Hansson

Economists often provide predictions about future interest or policy rates. In contrast to stock market predictions, these forecasts are typically regarded seriously and presented with a degree of accuracy. This paper explores whether placing more confidence in policy rate predictions than stock market predictions is reasonable. It begins by examining historical policy rates predictions in Sweden, comparing them to actual rates to assess their accuracy. The paper then delves into the discussion of how costs of mispredictions, such as sudden and... unexpected policy rate increases, can and should be addressed. Despite the Central Bank making predictions within confidence intervals and the banking sector regulating individuals’ borrowing, the burden of unpredicted rate increases falls almost entirely on individuals. The paper addresses whether that is reasonable.
