Bringing needs and solutions together for the
future of Health

ECHAlliance presents the Digital Health Society moonshot in Sitges at the HIMSS Europe / Health 2.0
Several companies, policy-makers and researchers from across Europe have attended the presentation of the DHS vision for the next years: a moonshot called “100 million Digitally Connected Healthy EU citizens by 2027”. Putting a strong emphasis on the human factor and on “humanising digital health”, the work programme of the DHS Task Forces, enabled by ECHAlliance, proposes a series of actions to be taken in key areas such as interoperability, Citizen controlled Data and Data Donors, data governance and the legal framework and the practical learnings from digital transformation. 

The Update session in Sitges let the floor to the DHS community and new comers to ask questions, make comments and interact with each other, in order to progress this agenda and develop a common vision. A formal DHS Board meeting also took place in Sitges, inviting supporters to attend and observe the session in a transparent manner.
