Motion to enable the digital transformation of health and care

On 18 December 2020 the European Parliament adopted in plenary a motion for resolution entitled “Enabling the digital transformation of health and care”.

This motion for resolution is a call from the Members of the European Parliament asking the European Commission and Member States to take the necessary steps to guarantee access to and sharing of personal health data while applying the GDPR rules meticulously and to fulfil the need for better health data and for better digital tools.

In order to guarantee access to and sharing of personal health data, the European Parliament:

  • Calls the Commission and the Member States to exchange best practices on the sharing of health data;
  • Calls the Commission to promote the secondary use of data for research and to ensure fair, transparent and non-discriminatory access to data throughout Europe; 
  • Asks the Commission and the Member States to use real-world data for regulatory decisions on medicines to complement evidence from randomised-controlled clinical trials.

In order to fulfil the need for better health data, the European Parliament asks the European Commission:

  • To set up a platform on the application of the Medical Devices Regulations to digital therapeutics and combination products, with specific attention to the needs of start-ups and SMEs;
  • To establish European coordinated action to support the secure exchange and linkage in practice of genomic and other health data in order to advance the progress of researchers and personalised medicine.
