European Health Data Space: Enabling Future Innovation

As proven by the fight against COVID-19, data and digital health have the potential to drive change and improve efficiency and accessibility in healthcare.

To make the most of this enormous potential, the European Commission opened a public consultation on the European Health Data Space, one of its most ambitious initiatives, aiming to embrace the innovation and technologies of the future, in a safe and protected environment for the European citizens.

Together with its Digital Health Working Group, EUCOPE submitted its response, calling for a fit-for-purpose regulatory framework. We believe only a balanced environment will enable safe data-sharing, accelerate the rollout of personalised medicine and diagnostics solutions, and drive innovation in AI and digital health.

See our response to the inception impact assessment here, while our position paper on AI in healthcare is available here.
