DigitalHealthEurope: Support to a Digital Health and Care Innovation initiative in the context of Digital Single Market strategy

Project description

Aiding policy and large-scale deployment of digital health

The EU aims to provide all citizens access to safe and top-quality digital health and care services. In line with the European Commission’s Digital Single Market strategy, the top priorities are to ensure secure access to their health data, to personalise medicine through shared European data infrastructure, and to empower citizens with digital tools for person-centred care. The EU-funded DigitalHealthEurope project will provide comprehensive support for the digital transformation of health and care. It supports large-scale deployment of digital solutions for person-centred care, facilitating the replication of impactful best practices through twinning actions. On a policy level, the project will support decision-makers with white papers, guidelines and policy recommendations.


DigitalHealthEurope will provide comprehensive, centralised support to the digital transformation of health and care (DTHC) priorities of the Digital Single Market. The partners bring a broad range of collective knowledge and expertise, originating from the longstanding leadership and engagement in the whole spectrum of activities, from interoperability and standards to health service innovation and from the technical to the policy level. The project will support large-scale deployment of digital solutions for person-centred integrated care by identifying, analysing, and facilitating the replication of highly impactful best practices, utilising the consortium’s exceptional expertise on knowledge management and impact assessment (EIP on AHA repository of innovative practices, MAFEIP), twinning schemes, and mobilisation of stakeholders. A marketplace will enable organisations to find suitable partnerships. At least 46 twinnings ranging from adaptation of impactful best practices to full adoption will be carried out. A funding advice service and capacity building framework will be provided to further stimulate deployment and scale up. Building on the unique composition of the consortium, the project will establish and manage 3 collaboration platforms to align all efforts of ongoing and future initiatives supporting the 3 DTHC priorities. The partners will utilise their vast network of more than 1,100 members representing national, regional, and EU-wide stakeholders. The collaborative work will lead to common strategic agendas and commitments for action that will boost innovation and progress in the respective topics. A Board of Associated Experts with proven high-level competence on all key fields will support the delivery of an actionable strategic vision and recommendations for EU policy beyond 2020.
