Empowering Citizens – The Key to a Successful Digital Health Transformation

The COVID-19 pandemic brought the untapped potential for the deployment of digital health tools in Europe to the fore. Digital tools can empower citizens to manage their own health, allow healthcare workers to treat patients remotely, enable beneficial research efforts, and equip authorities to accurately track public health through data.

During our Roundtable event in partnership with Euractiv, we discussed the work of the Digital Working Group, focusing on how the European Union can ensure that citizens are fully empowered and truly engaged in the development of digital health & well-being. The discussion contributed to our policy paper by focusing on three key aspects of the digital transformation of healthcare; Digital Skills & Literacy, the European Health Data Space and the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Our policy paper will be released later this year. Please find the full video below:
