Developing the DHDN encountered both victories and defeats. It demonstrated that persistent and consistent project management was critical to success. So, if local pilot projects did not live up to the expectations and goals, they were phased out. Similarly, when system providers did not live up to demands and obligations, it was revealed clearly to the others. In the same way, results from each region were revealed each month on the EDI-topix. This exchange of experience was very signi¿cant for the development work as more and more players were connected to the DHDN.

In 2001, Sweden recognised the need to establish a common IT infrastructure, to foster close co-operation between care providers and the IT industry and reinforce the IT areas of the care providers, Carelink and The Private Healthcare Suppliers Association. Swedish eHealth policies and strategies have largely evolved from this setting. By 2005, all county councils were members of the Carelink Cooperation dealing with IT strategy and investment. Currently, collaboration between the healthcare sector and industry is effective.

The planning, delivery and management of healthcare services in Sweden is carried out at three political levels: central government, county councils, and local authorities. Elected political representatives have a signi¿cant inÀuence on health and welfare systems, and are generally responsible for strategic decisions and funding. The National Board of Health and Welfare is the government’s central advisory and supervisory authority for health services, health protection and social services. The Board reviews and evaluates health services to establish their performance against goals laid down by central government.
