Description of project: 
The vision of the multi-disciplinary program Digital Health Revolution is to enable the utilization of data about the individual as part of personal, preventive services, which in turn will improve citizens’ opportunities for self-management of one’s wellbeing. The program is built on the idea that an individual can control and make use of his or her personal data. The program aims to combine data from different sources, including genome data, health and wellbeing monitoring data and everyday behavioral data comprising the personal digital footprint in a systematic way. The personal health data will be processed for the benefit the individual, companies and the society by creating digital service solutions and new business opportunities. Pilots will be launched to create user-oriented, preventive service solutions. In a long run, the outcomes of the project will facilitate the integration of personal data and personal my data based services into the future public health care service concepts.
