eHealth Task Force deliver recommendations to Commission

A group of experts has warned that Europeans will only benefit from the affordable, less intrusive and more personalised healthcare which ICT can bring if agreement is reached on how to use health data.

The group, headed by the President of Estonia, ToomasHendrikIlves, delivered this and other recommendations for redesigning health in Europe to Vice President NeelieKroes and Commissioner John Dalli at eHealth Week 2012 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Amongst its specific recommendations, the task force called for “a legal framework and space to manage the massive amounts of health-related data.”
