MedTech Europe joins health stakeholders to express concerns about the draft text of the European Health Data Space

Posted on 07.03.2024

MedTech Europe, as part of a coalition of a coalition of 35 large health stakeholder organisations, representing patients, health professionals, researchers and industrial actors in the healthcare ecosystem at both European Union (EU) and Member State level, is expressing its shared concerns about the latest negotiations on the proposed Regulation on the European Health Data Space (EHDS). 

There is a real desire by the health stakeholder community for this proposed legislation to be a success. The potential benefits offered by a well-functioning EHDS would be significant. However, despite repeated calls by health stakeholder organisations from across the European healthcare ecosystem, a number of fundamental issues have not been addressed satisfactorily.

MedTech Europe has also published its key recommendations on the EHDS Trilogue negotiations, in case you missed it, read it here.
