Digital Health Europe
The project's approach involves a number of actions that will boost innovation and advance the Digital Single Market priorities for the digital transformation of health and care (DTHC), as outlined in the European Commission's 2018 Communication on the topic.
The priorities concern:
- citizens’ secure access to and sharing of health data across borders
- better data to advance research, disease prevention and personalised health and care
- digital tools for citizen empowerment and person-centred care.
To achieve these three priorities, the project work plan offers two forms of support.
Together, they will form a common vision of EU coordination and support for DTHC beyond 2020.
DigitalHealthEurope's main objective the deployment of digital solutions for person-centred integrated care.
Assessment tools will be used to identify, analyse and select successful initiatives which are highly impactful and replicable.
DigitalHealthEurope will also provide structured advice on EU funding instruments and financing sources. The selected initiatives will have the opportunity to pursue replication and scaling-up.
DigitalHealthEurope will also facilitate the creation of a shared platform for multi-stakeholder communities. These communities directly address the three priorities.
