Proposal for a regulation of the European Health Data Space
The European Commission has presented a draft regulation for a European Health Data Space (EHDS). Bitkom welcomes the chosen route of collating health data and ensuring their cross-border usability. We are convinced that a uniform European Health Data Space with transparent, efficient and innovation-promoting conditions is the central component of a connected and learn-as-you-go health sector.
Our position paper provides an initial assessment of the proposal and highlights a number of points, which should be critically reviewed. We look forward to contributing to the ongoing dialogue with the cross-sectoral professional and technical expertise brought together under the umbrella of Bitkom.
