- providing citizens and clinicians with data-driven solutions to optimize health care.   

Central Denmark Region and our hospitals play a significant role in the Danish healthcare system.

The Danish health care system is world-class and characterized by a high degree of specialization, technological solutions and digitization as well as a long-standing tradition for systematic collection of data in local as well as national databases and registries with extremely high validity and completeness.

Using evidence-based and data-driven solutions is our key to transform health care in a society characterized by a high level of public digitisation facing a constant demand to improve health for more citizens for less money.
