WHO WE ARE

The Digital Health Society (DHS) movement was born during the Estonian EU Presidency in 2017, which focused on the development of a digital society in Europe, enabled by the free flow of data, as the fifth freedom right in the European Union. Launched by the Ministry of Social Affairs of Estonia and the ECHAlliance as a call for action, the 1st objective of the DHS has been to bring together all stakeholders of the digital health ecosystem around the table to drive the agenda of the EU Presidency.

OUR PURPOSE

The Digital Health Society, an open multi-stakeholder movement, is both:
A Digital Health thought leadership platform, to generate innovative ideas, exchange knowledge, experiences, best practices, success stories and design a route for large-scale deployment. For this purpose we have created several Task Forces with international experts

An Innovation and Implementation Factory able to bring “on the ground” the innovations. With the DHS community, the “Coalition of the Doers”.
