Avicenna provides feedback on the processing of personal health data in the EU


During the month of July, the Avicenna Alliance received the opportunity to provide its contribution to the European Commission Survey on the processing of personal health data in the EU.

The Commission aimed to examine in which manners the processing of personal health data is governed across EU Member States and how this might affect the cross-border change of health data in the EU in light of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

By an online survey the Commission collected the views of experts and organisations representing the wide range of stakeholders, including patients, care providers, industry, public bodies and researchers.

We would like to thank Avicenna Members for their contributions, and more particularly, the 16 Members who have provided us with their input provided to the European Commission: Voisin Life Sciences Consulting, Boston Scientific, Ansys, Digital Orthopaedics, ELEM bio, the VPH Insitute (including the Institute of Clinical Physiology of Pisa, the University of Catania, de University Pompeu Fabra from Barcelona), Servier, QUIBIM, Mediolanum Cardio Research, Virtonomy, Medtronic, Dassault Systèmes and inSilicoTrials Technologies!
