Data is like oxygen for our healthcare system. Good data is vital in daily practice and is at the beginning of every improvement or breakthrough. However, data is nowhere near as inaccessible as it is in healthcare. This is understandable, but no longer necessary.

An important European law for data sharing in healthcare is coming up: the European Health Data Space (EHDS) law. This law promises a data revolution that will shake up the healthcare system considerably.

The upcoming law primarily gives citizens more control over their healthcare data, but at the same time wants to make medical data exchange quick and easy to access, across borders.

This forces the healthcare sector to work together more intensively to get on the same digital page for secure data exchange. How? With privacy technologies, we make it possible to get secure exchange technically on track.

You too can actively contribute to making data exchange in healthcare possible. Will you join us?

Here are some of the key features of the EHDS law:

  • Citizens will have more control over their healthcare data. They will be able to access their data, share it with healthcare professionals, and object to its use for research or other purposes.
  • Healthcare professionals will be able to access patient data more easily. This will help them to provide better care, as they will have a more complete picture of a patient’s health history.
  • Researchers will be able to access data for research purposes. This will help to accelerate the development of new treatments and cures.

The EHDS law is a significant step forward for data sharing in healthcare. It has the potential to improve patient care, reduce costs, and accelerate research. However, there are also some challenges that need to be addressed, such as:

  • Ensuring the security of patient data.
  • Building trust among patients, healthcare professionals, and researchers.
  • Addressing the ethical implications of data sharing.

The EHDS law is a complex piece of legislation, and it is still being finalized. However, it is clear that it has the potential to transform the healthcare system. It is important for all stakeholders to be involved in the implementation of the law, so that it can be used to its full potential.
