Meanwhile, on 19 November the European Parliament held an event chaired by Cristian Busoi MEP: “Promoting eHealth – efficiency, transparency and equal access to health services for patients”. I was asked to present the industry point of view, profiling its trends, challenges and our expectations from EU Institutions, including the European Parliament.
Other important aspects of data protection have also been debated in many Brussels events during the whole week. COCIR remains concerned about ongoing discussions at Council level on data protection regulation and is closely following this progress together with other industry associations and the coalition formed in healthcare with other key stakeholders.
COCIR will continue its efforts in eHealth-related activities and will keep you informed of progresses.
