EASD 2021


Today, digitalisation is transforming diabetes care, probably more rapidly than any other therapeutic area. Ever-increasing amounts of health data are becoming available including data from electronic medical records, clinical trials, medical devices, apps, etc. The use of data is reshaping diabetes prevention and care. It is transforming the relationship between people living with diabetes (PwD) and healthcare professionals (HCPs). It has the potential to improve health outcomes, accelerate research and inform policy making. However, the use and sharing of data bring challenges and ethical questions, regarding, for example, data access, privacy and ownership.

A panel comprised of PwD, HCPs and representatives from academia, industry and health authorities will discuss the rationale and prerequisites for data sharing and use. They will explore how at times divergent interests can also converge to promote PwD engagement and drive holistic changes that benefit PwD and other stakeholders.
