Good(s) for Health: Personalised Health Services and Flexible Appropriation of Bioinformation

The research consortium Good(s) for Health: Personalised Health Services and Flexible Appropriation of Bioinformation (1 August 2015 – 31 July 2019) is currently studying the management of multi-material digital bioinformation in articulating medical genomics in practical nursing as well as the commercialisation of genomic data.

The research focuses on combining bioinformation and health information and flexibility in different kinds of research, health and business information contexts, as well as the expectations on and problems in utilising genomic data. The research uses a social and management science approach, and the research material consists of interviews and group discussions with researchers, clinical staff, patients, and entrepreneurs.

The research consortium is led by Ilpo Helén, D.Soc.Sc., Professor of Sociology at the University of Eastern Finland. The sub-projects are led by Hanna Lehtimäki, D.Sc. (Econ.), Professor of Innovation Management (University of Eastern Finland, Business School) and Karoliina Snell, D.Soc.Sc., (University of Helsinki, Department of Social Research).
