Commission seeks views on healthcare innovation


The European Commission is asking for opinions from a wide target group, including researchers, on how best to use digital innovations to improve people’s health.

The public consultation, launched on 20 July, is looking at how to address the systemic challenges faced by the EU’s healthcare systems. Its aim is to identify ways to encourage the uptake of digital innovations in health care and to collect information on cross-border access to personal health data.

Participants are asked for their views on the sharing of resources—including digital infrastructure and scientific expertise—that are needed to accelerate research, prevention and treatment. The Commission is initially focusing on the sharing of resources in three areas: rare and complex diseases; preparedness for epidemics; and the use of real-world data to assess the effectiveness of medical products.
