What is CRANE?

CRANE (Comprehensive Treatment of Chronic Patients in Rural Areas - Grant agreement 965277) is an H2020 Pre-Commercial Procurement European project.

CRANE is a collaboration between the public health care services of Agder Region in Norway, Extremadura in Spain and Region Västerbotten in Sweden. The project aims to empower citizens in their health-data access and management, from private as well as public sources, for their ultimate health benefit.

The final CRANE solution will target citizens who are at risk or have a chronic condition which requires action, and wants to self-manage or improve the management of their health conditions. The CRANE solution aims to make the citizens entire public & personal health data automatically accessible and provides through intelligent technologies new smart and tailored insights.
