MedTech Europe calls on EU legislators to ensure the new European Health Data Space promotes the potential of health data
Posted on 06.05.2022
The proposed European Health Data Space legislation, published on 3 May 2022, sets out to create an ecosystem for better exchange of and access to health data. Following its publication, MedTech Europe calls on EU legislators to involve industry in discussions on the secondary use of health data for research to ensure access to high-quality data when developing new technologies. In an effort to foster an ecosystem for better exchange of and access to health data, MedTech Europe highlights two important considerations: first, the importance of ensuring that provisions to improve data sharing are built on international interoperability standards, and second, the need to achieve clear alignment with existing legislation in order to establish a seamless data exchange within the health ecosystem. MedTech Europe will closely collaborate with policymakers to ensure that the European Health Data Space legislation can become a true enabler of improved healthcare delivery and better health research and innovation.
