Ensuring the full potential of EHDS: Stakeholders’ recommendations on how to make the digital transformation a success across Europe

Brussels, 29 November 2022

The stakeholders of this joint statement welcome the proposal for a Regulation on the European Health Data Space (COM 197/2022). Its adoption will accelerate the appropriate availability and improve the quality of electronic health data to support safe continuity of care across borders and empower patients to have greater access to, and control over, their own health data across Europe.

We, therefore, petition all Member State and European decision-makers to strongly support this Regulation and to engage with the broad group of stakeholders to ensure the final Regulation optimises its potential.
With this in mind, we would like to recommend several considerations be taken into account when developing the more specific implementation plans to put this Regulation into practice across the Member States.
