Boosted by the fast development of new AI capabilities, data has been called the new life blood of health systems: informing pathways; integrating health, social and lifestyle data; personalizing health and care; predicting and preventing conditions; managing populations’ health; moving from volume to value; and fueling research and innovation. However, health data is still too siloed to unleash its full potential. How can we make the most of EHRs and other sources of data for secondary use? Can data lakes promote a healthy flow of information and pave the way for a new set of services that are based on fair data and transparency of services? Organized in close collaboration with the Portuguese EU Presidency, this session will discuss strategies to fluidify the exchange of health information in Europe, enable public-private data collaborations and balance our need to protect privacy with our mission to save lives.
