The European Commission has launched a public consultation on transformation of health and care in the Digital Single Market on 20 July 2017. This consultation investigates the need for policy measures that will promote digital innovation for better health and care in Europe and feed into a new Policy Communication to be adopted by the end of 2017.

The consultation collects views on:

  • Cross-border access to and management of personal health data;
  • A joint European exploitation of resources (digital infrastructure, data capacity), to accelerate research and to advance prevention, treatment and personalised medicine;
  • Measures for widespread uptake of digital innovation, supporting citizen feedback and interaction between patients and healthcare providers.

The consultation is open until 12 October 2017.
