Health Data Spaces are awesome

In december 2023 the European Parliament adopted the European Health Data Space (EHDS). The EHDS will empower citizens to control their personal healthcare data and facilitate secure sharing for research and altruistic (not-for-profit) purposes. The law would give patients the right to access their personal health data across the EU’s different healthcare systems (so-called primary use), and allow health professionals to access data on their patients, strictly based on what is necessary for a given treatment. The EHDS would allow aggregated health data, including on pathogens, health claims and reimbursements, genetic data and public health registry information, to be shared for public interest reasons, including research, innovation, policy-making, education and patient safety purposes (so-called secondary use).

The challenge for Europe -and countries beyond Europe- is to make for each member state an individual approach based on the common EHDS framework. Each country has its own unique challenges and strengths due to differences in administrative systems, cultural norms, and policy-making approaches. The situation is complex, and progress is not uniform across Europe.

Novatrust approach

Our goal is to create a harmonized health data ecosystem that respects both innovation and data protection. By working with regional health authorities, we want to encourage an environment that enables innovation and protects data rights. We do this by buidling partnernetworks, education and engaging with stakeholders in a transparent way.

We are working on creating governance models and policies that support the cross-border use of EHDS. We are evaluating the technical capabilities of stakeholders in an ecosystem to adopt and implement EHDS. We are also providing training and guidance to help with the implementation of EHDS. We are conducting a thorough analysis of the value proposition of EHDS across different (international) stakeholders.

 “The European Health Data Space represents one of the central building blocks of the European Health Union and a milestone in the EU’s digital transformation. It is one of the few pieces of EU legislation where we create something completely new at the European level. The EHDS will empower citizens by enhancing healthcare at a national and cross-border level, and will facilitate the responsible sharing of health data – boosting research and innovation in the EU.”
