Data is a vital part of healthcare delivery and bring advantages for stakeholders in the system to enable data-driven decisions, management, and care. Last decade’s new technology has opened immense opportunities to what?  However, in Sweden and other European countries, several challenges exist to accessing and using health data, such as ownership issues, the connection between different data structures or how data generated in research can be shared and used in healthcare. Interoperability between different actors can and needs to be improved to leverage the full potential of health data and enable more efficient and equal patient care.

This session is divided into two parts where the first one will address how different stakeholders view opportunities and challenges connected to an increased use of data, linked to well-being and health. Starting from the patient perspective, t the discussions will deepen with the view of healthcare professionals and end up with a joint discussion and list of recommendations to policymakers.

The second part will bring together stakeholders from different EU member states and discuss the necessity of a framework for a European Health Data space to improve patient care. The patient perspective will be included by a representative from a European patient advocacy group. This panel is an initiative of the EU-funded project EDAH, seeking to bridge the EHDS roll-out gap in Europe.
