Digital health refers to the use of information and communication technologies to improve the quality and accessibility of healthcare through prevention, diagnosis, monitoring and management of health and lifestyle habits. The European Commission is taking action to develop the digital health sector and has this as one of its main objectives for the 2019-2025 cadence. A common European health data space is to be created not only for treatment, but also for research and health policy-making. This space is to be built on the pillars of a robust data governance system and rules governing data exchange, data quality and appropriate infrastructure and interoperability. Both the European Union and Israel place great emphasis on developing the digital health sector in the upcoming years. Meetings such as the “Healthtronics EU-Israel bridge” can facilitate the exchange of ideas and experience to develop the digital health sector and contribute to improving the accessibility and quality of healthcare.
