The input from this consultation will feed into a new policy Communication to be adopted by the end of 2017, as announced in the recent review of the Commission's Digital Single Market strategy; See press release.
The EU Survey will be open until 12 October 2017.
The consultation will collect information on the three proposed main pillars of the Communication:
- Citizens' secure access to their health data and the possibility to share it across borders, clarifying citizens' rights and enhancing interoperability of electronic health records in Europe
- Connecting and sharing data and expertise to advance research, personalise health and care, and better anticipate epidemics
- Using digital services to promote citizen empowerment and integrated person-centred care
