Gravitate-Health EU-China Workshop

24th August 2022 @ 08:00 11:00

Gravitate-Health EU-China Workshop

The Gravitate-Health project organises the workshop “Challenges and solutions for electronic labeling medications in the EU and China: collaboration opportunities” at 3rd Europe-China Health IT Summit. The workshop takes place on 24th August at 8 am CET.

A product information is a critical risk-minimization measure communicating benefit/risk and usage instructions. There are a variety of formats (paper, electronic) and types (patient, HCP) distributed according to national requirements. Also, there are differences of the products information not only contents, but also the template of the product information. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, various electronic labeling initiatives have been accelerated worldwide following the full digitalization movement in health care and pharmaceuticals fields. E-labeling improves the accessibility and understanding of medical product information, thereby enhancing adherence to medicines and patient outcomes. The availability of the up-to-date labeling on a publicly accessible website is an important first step in improving patient safety and trust in medicines. Eventual removing paper labeling from the commercial packs will improve efficiencies on reducing operational steps for inserting paper labeling in packs, and support environmentally friendly process. The adoption of e-labeling in a structured format enhances the user’s ability to navigate information on how to use, handle the product and to better understand safety information. In the future, e-labeling will be integrated with the wider digital healthcare system such as electronic medical record, electronic prescription, resulting to greater efficiencies, and opportunities lie within the healthcare sector. In this session, we will share the landscape of e-labeling initiatives around the world, the most up-to-date ePI initiatives led by EMA and the current situation and challenges on product information in China and Europe. Also, we will discuss the current technology landscape in medical informatic area which will be linked to digital health and the innovative research project on product information from patient centric point of view in China and Europe. In the closing panel, the speakers will join the discussion on collaboration opportunities between the EU and China.
