ESR co-signs joint healthcare statement on the EU Artificial Intelligence Act

The ESR has joined 10 healthcare associations across Europe – covering patients, healthcare professionals and the medical technology industry – in publishing a statement on the EU Artificial Intelligence (AI) Act, highlighting how the act can give citizens the confidence to embrace AI-enabled medical technologies.

The statement outlines four considerations to be taken into account during negotiations. The AI Act must:

  1. align with all relevant horizontal and sectoral European laws and concepts;
  2. provide more clarity on the definitions;
  3. provide a clear data and data governance framework as data is indispensable for AI;
  4. ensure uniform application and implementation of its provisions across Member States regarding its governance structure to avoid unnecessary fragmentation within the Single Market.

The full statement can be found here.

The statement will be sent to EU policy makers from the European Commission, Parliament, and Council to urge them to agree on a fit for purpose AI Act that is able to foster innovation and deliver ethical, safe, and effective care and diagnosis.

The statement has also been signed by COCIR, Digital Health Society, the European Association of Urology, ECHAlliance, European Federation of Nurses Association, European Hospital Management Association, the European Specialist Nurses Organization, the Federation of European Academies of Medicine, Lung Cancer Europe and MedTech Europe.
