A multi-sector approach to accelerating the digital health transformation
Online: 1 February 2022, 2-5pm CET
The French EU Council Presidency has placed digital health at the heart of their Presidency priorities for the first half of 2022. Objectives include the promotion of the EU health data space which will facilitate the interoperability of data between health systems, improving the continuity of care and demanding compliance with ethical standards and personal data.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on humanity, but has helped to accelerate the digital health transformation that is much needed to achieve United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 in accordance with the European Digital Decade Agenda 2030. The digital health community is one of the most innovative in the health industry, which can drive socio-economic growth within the European Union and produce better health outcomes for patients and health systems.
Ahead of the EU Health Ministerial Summit on 2nd February, The G20 Health and Development Partnership in collaboration with one of its partners Dedalus and endorsed by The French EU Council Presidency is jointly organising a virtual event “Beyond COVID-19: a multi-sector approach to accelerating the digital health transformation” on 1st February.
The virtual summit is the first in the series that will bring together European Health Ministers, policymakers, Members of the European Parliament, Global Health NGOs, European businesses in the digital health and health systems space. Following this virtual summit, a second high-level event will take place in person in Paris on 31st May.
This event is in support of Europe’s Digital Decade 2030 goals and the French Presidency of the European Council’s priorities on digital transformation. It is an official event in collaboration with the French Presidency of the European Council.
