This event takes place against the recent announcement of the European Commission’s proposal for the European Health Data Space (EHDS), which will benefit from €12 billion investments in digital health through Member States’ National Recovery and Resilience Plans (NRRPs). The EHDS sets out objectives to offer e-health services to citizens no matter where they find themselves in the EU, and additionally to expand (MyHealth@EU) and establish (HealthData@EU) cross-border health data sharing infrastructures for primary and secondary use.
As several Member States begin to procure and some already receiving pre-financing disbursements, the event will take a deeper look at the ways in which RRF funds are contributing to the emergence of the EHDS through a digitalisation of the healthcare ecosystem at national level.
The event will look at how both RRF investments in both eHealth services and digital infrastructure will play a significant role in the materialisation of such a data space, whether investment gaps can be foreseen and what action can be taken to accelerate the digital transition of healthcare.
EHTEL Secretary General, Marc Lange, will partecipate in the panel discussion: "Where does Europe stand in its digitisation of the healthcare journey and what role can the RRF play?"
