Increasing interest and excitement in the potential of health data and evidence within the healthcare community has been triggered by a number of developments, including the greater availability and quality of electronic healthcare information, the emergence of tools for advanced analysis of large data volumes (greater computing power, data handling and analysis techniques) and the ability to link data from multiple sources.

There are a multitude of European initiatives and projects ongoing in this data and evidence generation space, a number of which are being driven by the European Institutions and Regulatory bodies. However, the scope and objectives of these projects often seem to be framed within the next 3 – 5 years, with numerous goals citing 2025 as a target date.

This final session of the workshop will take a look at data and evidence generation a little further into the future and ask what might this space look like in the next 10 – 15 years time and what opportunities, challenges and policy implications may come with this that we should already be thinking about now.
