European Commission launches the European Health Data Space


On 3 May, the European Commission launched the European Health Data Space (EHDS). The EHDS is one of nine European data spaces in the European Commission's 2020 European Strategy for Data. It builds on the Data Governance Act and the proposal for the Data Act.

With the EHDS, healthcare systems will become more resilient, accessible, and better able to provide quality treatment and care for patients. The EHDS will change how health data is being used, how research is conducted, ultimately improving policy-making.

The aim of EHDS is to put people in control of their own health data, not only within their country but also cross-border.
