Looking ahead to game-changing technologies in health and care
Fair data economy: New forms of economy are being built on data. For Europeans, it is really important that any such a data economy should be fair; for end-users, for service providers, and for data providers. Health and care are very important areas in which fair data can operate.
Data donation/data sharing: Knowing more about our own personal health and care can help us as individuals and as families. Yet also sharing that data – under the right circumstances – can help improve the health of our communities, and health and care systems at large – through public health and population health, and through good quality research. Currently, we think about donating our blood and our organs; now it’s time to consider donating our data. The digital world will surely improve the ways in which this can be done.
2019-2020 provides a set of major milestones on the EHTEL agenda. Content will be produced throughout an ongoing co-creation process over the next two years.
Already in 2019, there were fascinating outcomes that emerged from EHTEL’s May 2019 study visit to Bari, Italy and its ELO working group as well as EHTEL's Anniversary Symposium on 3-4 December 2019 in Barcelona.
