Launch of the Digital Health Society (DHS) Website!

The Digital Health Society (DHS) movement was born during the Estonian EU Presidency in 2017, which focused on the development of a digital society in Europe, enabled by the free flow of data, as the fifth freedom right in the European Union. Launched by the Ministry of Social Affairs of Estonia and the ECHAlliance as a call for action, the 1st objective of the DHS has been to bring together all stakeholders of the digital health ecosystem around the table to drive the agenda of the EU Presidency.

A great deal has already happened with more and more stakeholders joining the movement.

In addition, The Digital Heath Society has been incorporated as a legal entity in the Republic of Ireland and the initial directors have been appointed (more here).

The first formal board meeting took place in Sitges, Spain in May following a DHS presentation and the participants present were invited to be Observers of the Board Activities (more here).

The “Open“ Board demonstrated that the DHS is a movement not a closed shop.
