High tech meets
passion for healthcare

Era is developed by Ivbar Institute

Era is developed by Ivbar. We are a purpose driven organisation developing technology and expertise to support a fundamental shift in how healthcare is delivered.

Ivbar was founded in 2012 in Stockholm as a spin-off from Karolinska Institutet. Today we are world leading in our field, active in several countries.

 

Powered by purpose

Most healthcare organisations have an opportunity to transform data into valuable insights that can be used to improve care. Our mission is to provide health authorities, payer organisations and medical professionals with technical solutions to sustainably improve outcomes and reduce cost.

Ivbar’s integrated analytics and payment platform Era helps Health authorities, Payer and Provider organizations maximise the value of existing data. Combined with our broad expertise, we offer solutions to optimise resources and improve health outcomes for patients.


At Ivbar dedicated experts in software development work closely with experts in medicine, mathematics, health economics, epidemiology, and health care management. We’re all passionate about improving healthcare.

 

Solid track record with base in research

We work closely with the Swedish public sector and international customers to build Era. Much of our methodologies and technologies are developed through research projects and published in peer-reviewed articles.  

Healthcare systems in Sweden have been using Era since 2013. Today, it analyses data from millions of people in several countries.

 

We want to create a measurable positive impact on the health of 1 billion people through intelligent use of data.
