Question:

Some challenges remain to fully implement the Digital Health SocietyPlease, comment the challenge mentioned below and share some concrete examples of solutions or actions to overcome it.

 

 Lack of awareness and meaning
Citizens are not well enough informed about the benefits of the use of data for healthcare services or research. A lack of understanding (meaning) often leads to the non-acceptance for sharing data.

Lack of confidence and trust
Citizens should be assured that their data are protected and that all precaution have been taken to guarantee issues around privacy, confidentiality and security.

Lack of interoperability

In order to achieve the free flow of data, health data producers of the European countries and regions should embrace a common strategy regarding the interoperability of data, at the technical and at the semantic level.

Lack of clear legal framework

Related to the confidence and trust, European countries and regions should define clearly the conditions for health data use, based in the citizens informed consent, (indicating which are the characteristic of data that could be used, for which purpose, by what type of stakeholders).

Lack of training for institutions, healthcare providers and professionals

Data will be collected correctly and used in day-to-day practices of health professionals, if specific training are provided (to students in medical/nurses school and to current workforce).

Lack of change management strategy in healthcare systems

As in all sectors, the implementation of digital technologies is not only equipping the on-going work process and organisation. It requires a  re-think and re-organisation of  the whole system, the role of the stakeholders and the approach for the healthcare service delivery. Digital brings a complete transformation.

 


Question:

Some challenges remain to fully implement the Digital Health SocietyPlease, comment the challenge mentioned below and share some concrete examples of solutions or actions to overcome it.

 

Lack of meaningful and integrated solutions

Simple rough and general data information is not impacting behaviours. The citizens need to understand the meaning of each set of data, to have a view on the impact of their actions and choices on their health status and so on. The basic quantified self, thanks to all personal devices and wearables currently on the market, are not triggering the expected behaviour changes, because of the lack of meaningful information and the lack of integration within the healthcare systems.

Lack of innovation in funding models
Lack of money is also often indicated as one of the main barrier factors but it is debatable. If we observe the allocation of resources in the area of digital health, and particularly related to electronic health data deployment at the EU or at the Member States level, we realise that large sums have been or are being invested. The issue seems to identify creative and innovative funding models. Because EU systems are widely based on fee-for-services models, the added-value of data-based systems and solutions focused on integrated care, services quality, prevention and outcomes of the interventions don’t find their place in current purchase processes and contracts model. The challenge is then to break down the budget silos between health and social care or between secondary and primary care, to incentivise the stakeholders, to deploy more widely, innovative public procurement models, and new types of contracts, outcomes-based and involving risk sharing between the parties (suppliers-buyers-care providers).
