Moonshot & Action plan

In this news:
  • 2018 action plan of the DHS Task Forces
  • 100 million Digitally Connected Healthy EU Citizens by 2027

The Digital Health Society (DHS), an open multi-stakeholder movement, is both 

  • A Digital Health thought leadership platform to exchange knowledge, experiences, best practices, success stories.
  • A Lab, an innovation factory able to incubate and accelerate research & innovation projects and experimentations, but also, with the “Coalition of the Doers”, to deploy at large-scale innovative solutions for Digital Health. We will utilise the existing Networks of our members, in Regions, Countries and Communities to ensure practical implementations.
In order to focus on a same vision for Digital health in the future, the DHS community has designed a moonshot mission, aiming to support EU’s, Member states’ and regions’ policies and strategies around the Digital Single Market and Digital Health and care.

The Moonshot: 100 million Digitally Connected Healthy EU Citizens by 2027

It is an ambitious research and innovation programme for health and wellbeing in Europe, enabled by key support activities, and involving the EU citizens and the whole society.

Task Forces

  2. Citizen-controlled Data Governance and Data Donors
  3. Legal Framework for the Free flow and secondary use of health data
  4. Digital Transformation and change management in health and care organisations

All stakeholders are welcome to contribute to the Task Forces’ work.
