Will Finland capitalize on the emerging health data market in the EU?

The Path to a Healthier Europe: Unlocking the Potential of a New EU Regulation for Health Information

The European Parliament has recently approved a regulation on the health information area, which aims to establish an internal market for health information within the EU. This regulation grants citizens rights to their own health information, establishes interoperability requirements for information systems, and creates uniform methods for utilizing health data in research and development. However, the full benefits of this regulation will only be realized once implementing regulations and actions are put in place by the European Commission and member states.

Former Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta, in his report on the development of the European Union’s internal market, discussed the importance of creating more equitable health services for EU citizens. Letta proposed that EU citizens should have access to more standardized health services and medical care.

Enrico Letta’s report on the European internal market highlights the need for more equitable health services for EU citizens. One significant aspect of his report discusses health, a topic that has not traditionally been part of the core EU internal market. Letta proposes that EU citizens should have access to more standardized health services and medical care.

Finland is actively contributing to discussions on these topics through projects such as TEHDAS 2, which aims to develop guidelines for implementing the new regulations. The nation’s expertise in health data management positions Finnish companies well to export their knowledge to other EU countries, a potential opportunity for economic growth.

The European Parliament’s approval of the health information regulation removes a major hurdle to the internal market’s development. As various organizations across Europe begin to assess the implications of this legislation, there will be a need for significant investments, particularly in countries where health information systems are still paper-based. This presents a valuable opportunity for Finnish companies to export their information systems and consulting services to other member states.

Finnish early adoption of health data management practices positions them as a leading partner in EU projects
