Digga Halland is a collaboration project aiming to develop the digital competence among people working in the healthcare sector. This is necessary in order to provide the care recipients, their relatives and the employees themselves the most benefit possible from using digital services and ways of working.
Through the project, 7 000 employees in Halland get an online course on the foundation of digitalisation. Several municipalities have chosen to appoint representatives or coaches among their employees to drive the process and help with digitalisation.
