European Health Data Space track



European Health Data Space

This track will focus on:

  • Governance processes for health data ecosystems Potential examples to be covered involve work on the governance of assets and outcomes/results and appropriate management of medications.
  • mHealth, based on article 3 of the proposed Data Space, will include topics related to access, control, and sharing of people’s own data.


What is EHTEL doing in 2023?

This year, with its emphasis on facilitating knowledge and developing new knowledge, EHTEL’s Imagining 2029 edition is structured in two tracks. The two tracks are:  the European Health Data Space, and Hybrid Models of Care. They build on earlier work developed by EHTEL.

Each Imagining 2029 track has a specific orientation and is intended to attract different audiences.

EHTEL will also be present at, and involved in, a number of important events and conferences.

The first in a series is the Radical Health Festival Helsinki, which includes two sessions with Imagining 2029 themes and an EHTEL master class.

What's in it for me?

Both tracks build on EHTEL’s multistakeholder platform approach: they bring together the richness and variety of EHTEL’s membership and stakeholder communities. Webinars engage attendees: speakers and discussants are invited, and the audience gets involved in conversations and polls.

Our 2023 story: These two tracks create an interdependent flow – both themes of healthcare governance and implementation are related. Value comes from both, and each theme feeds into the other.

The European Health Data Space starts from data, whereas hybrid care begins with services. The need for more integrated services (e.g., bringing health and care together) acts as a trigger to provide and demand higher quality services and data that is coded (meta-data). The availability of data offers the opportunity to develop new use cases and new services

In terms of the resulting policies and technologies used to ensure people’s satisfaction with health and care – that can be called blended care – both technical and organisational aspects are needed.
