How do you imagine health and care in 2029 within the on-going digital transformation?
|EHTEL is working towards imagining the future of health and care systems in 2029. The initiative is based on active input from all the members of EHTEL’s ecosystem. It also includes plenty of exciting advances from all of the European Union-supported projects in which the association participates.
EHTEL imagines a positive, digital future in which all citizens will have better access to their health data, care data, and health, healthcare and care services thanks to digital tools and mobile apps. Health systems as a whole will benefit from a future in which health and care professionals from many different sectors, including the hospital and home, work closely together with citizens – using digital technologies. A more synchronised use of data will also improve the response of governments to health and care challenges, and will benefit the growth of European businesses and industries.
One example of the way this ecosystem can work together is the collaboration implicit in the OPEN DEI health and care cluster.
The big picture is the Common European Data Space
Europe is planning a European Data Space. Up to nine sectoral data spaces contribute to the space as a whole, including skills: health is a key data space. It is the first space on which Europe is focusing.
Looking forward to 2029 and a digital future for health and care
