The BigMedilytics project has developed eight country-specific infographics on the relevant European and national regulations for the collection, management and use of big data (technologies) in healthcare. They are focused on Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

One additional infographic compares the eight countries analysed on major themes: digitalization, governance, regulatory challenges, ethical debates, and social and cultural norms. This additional infographic will allow policymakers at the national and European level to learn from initiatives and approaches in other countries.

The nine infographics are now publicly accessible in the Deliverable 5.2 published on the project’s website under the title Country specific infographics that summarize the relevant regulations for big data technologies in the healthcare sector.


The BigMedilytics project is the largest EU-funded initiative under the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme to transform the region’s healthcare sector through the use of big data. The initiative aims to achieve better patient outcomes in healthcare at a lower cost through the application of big data solutions.
