The healthcare professions issue a Joint Statement on the European Health Data Space



Doctors, dentists, community pharmacists, hospitals and nurses support amendments to the European Health Data Space, which safeguard confidentiality and ethical duties, propose clarity on medical liability, reduce administrative burdens and offer appropriate compensation for the high costs of digitalisation.


In a Joint Statement, the 5 healthcare professions call upon the co-legislators to:

  • Respect higher ethical principles of patient confidentiality and professional secrecy.
  • Exclude healthcare professionals from providing data again for secondary use.
  • Bring clarity and certainty for liability of healthcare professionals in the electronic health record (EHR).
  • Provide financial compensation for digitisation costs.
