In early May, DeHavilland EU’s Policy Executive Luís Malhadinhas summarised the European Commission’s proposals for a Regulation on European Health Data Space (EHDS), which is an element within the wider European Health Union strategy.  

European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, Stella Kyriakides explains: “The European Health Data Space will be the backbone of the strong European Health Union we are building.” 
 
The EHDS aims to provide citizens in the EU full control over their health data, entirely free of charge, which will include vaccination status, laboratory results and electronic prescriptions, to name a few. It will also encourage citizens to share their data cross-border with all member states complying with a common European format and all member states having implemented MyHealth@EU by 2025.  
 
This development across health data will increase research abilities, which European Commissioner for Internal Market, Thierry Breton, described in a tweet that EHDS was a way to, “unleash data for better healthcare, research and innovation.” 
 
Luís’ Policy Note includes:  

  • An EHDS overview 

  • Member state expectations 

  • Commission commitments 

  • Next steps, reaction and links
