Location: Online (ZOOM) - link by registration 
Language: Swedish

Topic of the webinar: Accessible and useful e-health solutions for everyone - a competitive advantage

The webinar is about the increased demands for e-health solutions to follow rules and standards in order to be sold in the European market. The webinar also emphasizes how users with disabilities should be able to participate in the development and testing of e-health solutions.

  1. Title of the presentation 1: EU Accessibility Directive and national legislation in the field of accessibility.
    Speaker:  Stefan Johansson, Researcher and accessibility expert from Begripsam, presents the current legislation 

    Short summary: Two directives are tightening the requirements for digital services. The EU Accessibility Directive is already implemented in national law. Now comes the EU Accessibility Directive, which broadens the scope. The purpose is for people with disabilities, which is about 20% of the population, to be able to use digital services. The aim is also to harmonize the market so that the requirements apply across the EU. 

  2. Title of the presentation 2: What does accessibility really mean?
    Speakers: Stefan Johansson, Researcher and accessibility expert from Begripsam gives an introduction and tips for further reading

    Short summary:
    Introduction will be given about those principles, standards and guidelines that suppliers and procurers (purchasers??) need to adhere to in order to meet the requirements of the law. The most common methods for validation of accessibility are presented.

  3. Title of the presentation 3: Increased requirements for user participation - how should this be done?
    Speaker: Thomas P Larsson, Operations Manager from Funktionsrätt Skåne talks about a model for collaboration that can be used to guide the work. 

    Short summary: There is increasing pressure for suppliers to collaborate with users throughout the life cycle of their services. This also means that you should be able to show how this is done and what effects it has. Individuals and organizations that represent people with disabilities are increasingly being asked to participate. But should such a collaboration really take place? And how should it be possible to get enough people who can participate? 

  4. Title of the presentation: The research program CoDeAc - co-creation of available e-health services
    a. Marika Jonsson, Doctoral student at KTH and employed in the Västra Götaland Region,
    b. Stefan Johansson, Researcher and accessibility expert from Begripsam and
    c. Thomas P Larsson, Operations Manager from Funktionsrätt Skåne show examples of ongoing work.

    Short summary: In the CoDeAc eHealth project, people with disabilities, researchers, accessibility experts and designers collaborate to develop available e-health solutions and describe models for co-creative design processes. They will show examples of what the logged-in mode on would look like if it had been developed in this way. They also show examples of how they evaluate e-health services and work with problems around not everyone being able to use BankID to log in to their e-health services.
