Health Working Paper summary

Sitra’s publication “Towards trustworthy health data ecosystems” sets the guidelines towards sustainable, better health and care for the future. The paper provides a solid baseline for a discussion and it includes transformation goals of data-based health systems, challenges, a call to action and recommendations for new person-generated data. It also includes experts’ opinions and reviews. The purpose of this working paper is to create guidelines for how data can be used to promote health and well-being and what this requires from us, decision-makers and the entire health sector. The working paper states that a human-driven, fair data economy that creates new data-based, privacy-protected well-being and health services guarantees a transformation towards modern health-service systems. Data must be made more easily available and it cannot be used in silos. Instead, good use must be made of all competence in the production of more personalised services. This requires extensive co-operation among public and private parties as well as a wide range of actions, from soft regulation and rules to a new infrastructure and the integrated use of smart devices in healthcare processes.

Joint Action summary

The Joint Action Towards the European Health Data Space (TEHDAS) is a consortium of 26 EU MS and other countries that work to improve cross-border use of health data for the benefit of citizens’ health, for public health, research and innovation. TEHDAS builds on earlier EU actions fostering the digital transformation of European health systems. It contributes to responding to the Member States’ call at the October 2020 European Council to set up a European Health Data Space and proposed by the von der Leyen Commission. The Joint Action helps Members States and the Commission in developing and promoting concepts for sharing of data so that in the future Europe, citizens, communities and companies benefit from a protected and seamless access to health data regardless where it is stored. TEHDAS will suggest options for an operational framework and governance in order to overcome legal and technical differences between countries. TEHDAS is grounded on the principles of transparency, trust and citizen empowerment. It will work on technical and semantic challenges, propose services, architectural and infrastructural elements required in the European Health Data Space. Citizens increasingly manage their data which requires a better understanding and a European perspective. To maintain trust in fair and secure data sharing, TEHDAS will suggest strengthened governance mechanisms for cross-sector use of health data in common data spaces at the EU and Member State levels. TEHDAS will reach out and engage with many types of stakeholders to reflect their needs and expectations, explore views on economic issues, and suggest concrete ways to integrate results into the future the European Health Data Space.

More Connected, Personalized, and Intelligent Care

Good technology is designed to let providers focus on the patient and their care. At Intel, our goal is to build technology that enriches the life of every person on earth. Technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are making healthcare and life sciences more connected, personalized, and intelligent. For example, AI in medical imaging has enabled providers to identify anomalies more quickly and accurately, which can lead to faster diagnoses.1 Other applications of AI in healthcare support customized patient care, surgical precision, intelligent healthcare analytics, and new genomics research.

Combined with IoT healthcare technologies, AI has transformed telemedicine, patient monitoring, and electronic health record (EHR) keeping.

Intel healthcare technologies create efficiencies that enable providers to focus more on the human side of care delivery. In lab and research environments, our technology innovations give researchers powerful tools to make breakthrough discoveries and solve some of the world’s largest healthcare and life science challenges. By working together with solution providers and end users in the healthcare community, we’ll continue to develop transformative technologies for the future of healthcare and life sciences.
