The EU public consultation survey on transformation health and care in the digital single market is open until the 12th of October 2017. The purpose of this consultation is to define the need and scope of policy measures that will promote digital innovation in improving people’s health, and address systemic challenges to health and care systems.
The consultation collects views on:
- Cross-border access to and management of personal health data;
- A joint European exploitation of resources (digital infrastructure, data capacity), to accelerate research and to advance prevention, treatment and personalised medicine;
- Measures for widespread uptake of digital innovation, supporting citizen feedback and interaction between patients and health care providers.
Digital data sharing is of vital importance to all cross-border healthcare initiatives, such as Endo-ERN.
