Digital Transformation of Health and Care, empowering citizens and building a healthier society

The Communication on Digital Transformation of Health and Care identifies three priorities:

  • Citizens’ secure access to their health data, including across borders, enabling citizens to access their health data across the EU;
  • Personalised medicine through shared European data infrastructure, allowing researchers and other professionals to pool resources (data, expertise, computing processing and storage capacities) across the EU;
  • Citizen empowerment with digital tools for user feedback and person-centred care using digital tools to empower people to look after their health, stimulate prevention and enable feedback and interaction between users and healthcare providers.

Furthermore, the Communication provides a concrete set of actions on how each priority can be attained.
