The EU presidency is a unique opportunity for Sweden to push the health data issue, writes, among others, our CEO Annika Szabo Portela, together with EIT Health interim CEO Jean-Marc Bourez in Dagens Medicin. Let's jointly take the lead and show that we are united and ready to build a new digital infrastructure together with the entire ecosystem. For this, a clear budget and division of responsibilities is needed.
