European Commission Consultation - Health and Care in the Digital Single Market

The European Commission has launched a public consultation on Health and Care in the Digital Single Market.

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. Those measures must be aligned with legislation on the protection of personal data, patient rights and electronic identification.

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.

techUK's Health and Social Care Programme will be responding to this consultation.

If you are interested in contributing to our response, please contact Kate Francis.
