Patient-doctor shared decision-making, wearable devices, artificial intelligence, a framework to make these technologies interoperable and useful for accessing personal medical data, trust, accountability, and the promise and potential perils of the European Health Data Space are some of the topics of this jam-packed 30-minute episode.
