Joint Statement of the Healthcare Coalition on Data Protection


Representing leading actors of the healthcare sector in Europe, the Healthcare Coalition for Data Protection would like to share their thoughts on the Commission’s proposal for a General Data Protection Regulation.

The Healthcare Coalition for Data Protection welcomes the Commission’s effort to harmonise data protection requirements in the EU. The Coalition also welcomes the provisions supporting healthcare and health research. However, some areas must be improved to facilitate medical innovation, improvements in care delivery, and to support Europe’s ground-breaking medical research for the benefits of society. Certain provisions might restrict the sharing of health data, delay innovation, create legal uncertainty and increase compliance costs if they remain unchanged.
