3rd Digital Health Society Summit

23/24 November - Online
DHS is delighted to announce the date for its

3rd Annual Summit (to be held virtually)

In Europe 2021, health data has never had a higher public profile as citizens check R numbers, and a variety of other pandemic and public health indicators. The European Commission has kept busy with consultations and legislation proposals on the European Health Data Space, AI, Data Governance and the TEHDAS Joint Action has started its work.

Taking stock of the progresses made so far, the Summit will focus on the acceptance criteria and technical prerequisites for societal trust in the use of health data and the most innovative citizen controlled data sharing governance models.
Last but not least, the Summit will be the opportunity to showcase pioneering regional initiatives on health data and data sharing and discuss strategies to accelerate investments in ready-to-market data-driven solutions.

So, for the 3rd Annual DHS Summit, the theme is “Health Data for Society”.

The programme will include:

What is health data?

Panel session - Moderator: SITRA

A showcase of Digital Health innovation and EU projects

The Global Health Connector session

Next steps to our Calls to Action with I~HD including ” Proposing a common basis for health data access across Europe” and “Scaling up the availability and reusability of big health data”.
