How will the European Health Data Space enable more effective sharing of health data?


Data has always been a foundation for research, innovation, and the development of health care. Access to data generated in healthcare for secondary use – i.e. for purposes such as research, product development, or community planning – is limited and it is often claimed that health data is underutilized.

Welcome to a seminar exploring the benefits and challenges of sharing health data for secondary use. The questions addressed include: How have the suggested principles for the secondary use of health data within EHDS been developed? In what ways will the EHDS framework facilitate access to health data within the EU? When can we expect the first steps of implementation? What can we learn from recent changes in the health data regulations in Finland?
