What is Smart4Health?

Smart4Health enables citizens to manage and bridge their own health data throughout the EU and beyond, advancing own and societal health and wellbeing.

Smart4Health will enable the citizen-centred EU-EHR exchange for personalised health. This will pave the way for the full deployment of citizen-centred solutions and services in a digital single market for ellbeing and healthcare. It will provide for interoperability, complementarity and cooperativity with profiles that are currently used e.g. by Member States, regions. It will connect citizens to science and personalised health services.

There is a unique opportunity for a step change, based on the wide reach of mobile networks and services, smart devices and wearables at speed: The empowered EU citizen is managing own health data at the centre of her/his active and healthy life in a modern digital society. 
'Wellbeing services' and 'personalised (precision) medicine' are increasingly important and enabled by the power of omics approaches and personalization in the so-called Digital Health. 

The Smart4Health prototype will comprise the 4HealthPlatform (4HP) data layer connecting with the 4HealthNavigator (4HN) portal for services and applications. Using the 4HealthPlatform, citizens will be empowered with electronic health(care) record exchange, personal connected health services, and the ability of data donorship to the scientific community. Activities surrounding the Smart4Health platform will enable citizen to manage, collect, access and share own health and healthcare data. 

Smart4Health provides an easy-to-use, secure, constantly accessible and portable health data and services prototype within the EU and beyond, thus advancing citizen health and wellbeing, nurturing digital health innovation by enhancing interoperability and bridging the gap between political intent and capability for action by the citizen:

  • Citizens managing own and own-generated health data in the EU and beyond, with data in actionable formats
  • Providing for smart processing and analysis
  • Citizens digital Health and Care with validated open source interoperability assets and new tools
  • Secure, seamless communication of health-related data through clarity and oversight.
