Simple and effective data collection through an app
The app replaces the pen-and-paper survey that the Center for Epidemiology and Community Medicine (CES) within Region Stockholm sends out every fourth year to 50,000 randomly selected Stockholmers, to gather health data.
Over time, fewer people have chosen to respond to the pen-and-paper survey and CES has been getting more responses from older target groups than younger ones. This led to a need for a new method to gather data on dietary habits, exercise, and alcohol use.
Hälsometern has made collection of health data simpler and more modern. In addition, CES reaches more target groups and gathers more stringent data, which are used as decision support regarding infrastructure and healthcare in Region Stockholm.
