This session will be live streamed. Watch here

xShare Kicks Off to Help us Share our Health Data in EEHRxF by Clicking the ‘Yellow Button’

The xShare project is proud to announce the official launch of its consortium, consisting of 41 partners. The session marks a crucial step forward in the European digital health landscape, with the introduction of the innovative xShare ‘yellow button’ and industry label to the European market.

The ‘yellow button’ is more than just a symbol – it will be a gateway to sharing our health data in the European Electronic Health Records Exchange Format (EHRxF), aligning with the upcoming European Health Data Space (EHDS) regulation. By clicking this button, prominently featured across health portals and digital health apps, each European will be able to exercise the data portability rights under GDPR.

xShare envisions a future where, with the ease of sharing images on our mobile devices, we can seamlessly share our health data across primary care, population health, and clinical research. The xShare Industry Label, associated with the ‘yellow button,’ will provide certainty that products are conformant to the European EHRxF.

Already eight early adoption settings across Europe have been confirmed, including hospital networks in Tuscany, Italy, national apps in Greece, Ireland, and Cyprus, as well as regional networks emphasizing medical tourism and public-private sector connections in Catalunya and Madeira. Clinical research applications in the myHealthSpace ecosystem of France are also part of the early adopters.

The xShare consortium, co-led by MedCom (DK) and HL7 Europe (BE), comprises a diverse collaboration, including standards developing organizations, industry associations, ministries of health, government agencies, SMEs, public health institutes, academic institutions, and a high-performance computing center.
