The key role of data infrastructure has been demonstrated throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We have learned the importance of a broader data infrastructure in facilitating cross-border data sharing that can better respond to transnational health threats, as well as increase the number of instruments in a healthcare systems ‘toolbox’.
The cornerstones of a health data ecosystem are data flows, data governance, secondary use of data and data privacy. Looking beyond the current crisis, concerns persist around the transparency of data sharing and data ownership. This session will address how these challenges can be overcome for an optimal data ecosystem, citing findings from the Personalised Health Index of the FutureProofing Healthcare initiative as well as drawing on a major new policy report by the ODI, commissioned by Roche, on secondary use of health data in Europe.
We invite participants to reflect and collaborate with leading digital health experts and policymakers to support the co-creation of an action plan towards an ideal data ecosystem and governance framework.
