Support to enabling the digital transformation of health and care in the Digital Single Market






European Commission (EC)

DigitalHealthEurope will provide comprehensive support to the Digital Health and Care Innovation initiative in the context of the Digital Single Market Strategy. The project’s approach involves a number of actions that will boost innovation and advance the Digital Single Market priorities for the digital transformation of health and care (DTHC), as outlined in the European Commission’s 2018 Communication on the topic.

The priorities concern:

  • citizens” secure access to and sharing of health data across borders,
  • better data to advance research, disease prevention and personalised health and care,
  • digital tools for citizen empowerment and person-centred care.

To achieve this, the project work plan offers two forms of support: support to large scale deployment of digital solutions for person-centred integrated care – incl. through a large number of twinnings, and support to DTHC innovation through collaboration in multi-stakeholder communities.

A common vision of EU coordination and support for DTHC beyond 2020 will be developed incl. actionable recommendations.
