Maximise EHDS impact on better health data sharing


European Health Coalition Hybrid Workshop on the new European Health Data Space Proposal

18 May 2022 | Hybrid event at Rue de l’Industrie 24, 1040 Brussels & Online

European Health Data Space can have a very positive effect on health research, care and innovation but it is necessary that certain barriers are addressed to maximise these opportunities.

The European Commission proposal for the European Health Data Space (EHDS) is intended to facilitate health data sharing and access for healthcare delivery (primary use of data) and health research and policy making (secondary use of data). During the meeting we will discuss the EHDS proposal, how it will affect health data sharing, best practices in relation to health data sharing, benefits for research, and barriers to health data sharing that should be addressed in the EHDS implementation.
