“Using the full potential of health data effectively, safely and securely means that health-care providers, policy-makers and digital health innovators can fast-track the adoption of new products and treatments, getting these tools into the hands of those who need them most,” said Dr Hans Henri P. Kluge, WHO Regional Director for Europe.

The European Commission agreed €12 Million to work with WHO/Europe on strengthening health data governance and interoperability.

This 4-year project aims to improve the use and reuse of health data by health-care providers, policy-makers and patients, and to enhance the quality and interoperability of health information systems.

For these purposes, WHO/Europe and the European Commission will develop and deliver capacity-building activities and assistance aimed at addressing gaps, needs and areas of expertise within supported countries’ health information systems and health data governance and capabilities, with a view to potentially expanding successful practices at country or regional levels.

JLI is actively developing models to put the individual in control of their health data while creating transparency in the overall health system. To learn more about what this looks like and how to get involved, contact
